Current North Campus Construction Projects
At San Jacinto College, we are extremely mindful of the impact our decisions have on our taxpayers and community. As the region’s leader in higher education, we want to ensure that we are providing the highest quality of education, in facilities that are top-notch, while keeping taxes and tuition low. We also know that providing a well-trained workforce for our region’s employers, and helping students seamlessly transfer to the four-year institution of their choice, are high priorities.
In order to help fill the worker pipeline more quickly, we recently broke ground on a new Center for Industrial Technology at the North Campus. Funding for this facility is not included in the 2015 bond proposal, but instead is being funded through alternate sources. This 113,000 square foot facility will house our welding, pipefitting fabrication, diesel technology, international business and logistics, electrical technology, and heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR) programs. It will provide the necessary space, as well as up-to-date infrastructure, so that we can keep pace as workforce training needs continue to escalate.
This Spring we will celebrate the opening of a new library at the North Campus. This building is funded through our 2008 bond referendum. Originally, we had planned to only renovate the existing library, but due to foundation and structural issues, we found it necessary to build a new library that will better meet the needs of our students. The current library will be demolished as part of the 2015 bond, and a new Cosmetology and Culinary Center will be built on the site. The updated library will include a reference desk, library instruction lab, computer lab, copy and printing stations, and study rooms.
THE 2015 BOND REFERENDUM DOES NOT INCLUDE CURRENT CONSTRUCTION FOR THE CENTER FOR INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY AND NEW LIBRARY. THESE PROJECTS ARE BUDGETED AT $56 MILLION AND ARE BEING FUNDED FROM OTHER SOURCES.
