Kent State University’s board last week approved $250 million of capital projects that feature $210 million of general receipt-backed borrowing.

Ohio needs to approve the offering, the university said.

Kent State plans to increase its student fees over the next seven years to help pay off the debt. Capital projects include science, engineering, and math buildings, according to local reports.

The construction projects would create up to 7,500 new jobs, university officials said.
