The Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute’s Foundation for Education and Research has awarded SUNY Cobleskill with over $13,000, as part of ICPI Foundation’s “Tools for Schools” grant initiative.
The funding will benefit the College’s Landscape Contracting and Development Associate’s and Bachelor’s degree programs, allowing for the purchase of hardscape construction tools that will improve segmental concrete pavement lab instruction and expand student experiences.
The ICPI is the authority for segmental concrete products and systems, which are the best value and preferred choice for resilient pavement, structures, and living spaces. In line with the Institute’s mission, its Foundation funds targeted educational and research programs and industry tools that will benefit the segmental concrete paver industry.
The Landscape Contracting and Development program at SUNY Cobleskill prepares students for leadership careers in the diverse field of landscaping. Areas of study include landscape design, landscape construction, project management, irrigation, and plant health. The program’s snow and ice management component is a unique offering not found in any other degree program in the nation.
