The Berkshire Eagle reports Berkshire Community College has been awarded $5.5 million for a project that will transform the first floor of the Field Administration building into a One Stop Student Success Center.

Gov. Charlie Baker announced this award on Tuesday at Westfield State University.

The funding is part of a five-year $190 million Capital Investment Plan for public higher education that encouraged the submission of proposals that would benefit the Massachusetts economy and support student success and completion.

BCC was selected as one of six projects for higher education institutions across the commonwealth, including the renovation of the 1956 Parenzo Hall at Westfield State where ceremonial bill signing for the $3.9 billion capital facility repairs act took place.
