The IU Trustees have approved the 2015 -17 capital request to the Indiana General Assembly.
Included in that request is $19.2 million for IU's portion of the new medical school campus in downtown Evansville.
USI and Ivy Tech will each submit their own requests to the general assembly during the 2015 legislative session.
If the funding is approved and released, construction on the med school could begin by late next year.
