On May 30, 2018, Governor Dayton signed the 2018 capital projects bill passed by Minnesota legislators, thereby securing $24 million for the renovation of Pillsbury Hall. The College of Liberal Arts will provide the remaining $12 million of the $36 million total project costs. CLA has launched a fundraising drive to secure the $12 million needed to complete the renovation of Pillsbury Hall. When the building reopens in the summer of 2021, it will be the new home for the Department of English and its Creative Writing Program.
