Pierce College building for tomorrow
“Pierce College has experienced a wonderful renaissance during the last few years,” said Dr. Joy McCaslin, interim president. “Probably the most visible changes involve the campus’ aged physical plant, which is simultaneously being renovated and built anew.”
This renewal has been supported by the generosity of the voters in approving three bond measures now funding the modernization of Pierce’s campus under the 2002 Master Plan, said McCaslin.
“To continue this momentum, updates are necessary. These refinements to the Plan will ensure that Pierce College has the resources to assist students in successfully achieving their academic goals.”
The 2010 Master Plan Update and Addendum to the 2002 EIR Report include:
- New projects: a Green Technologies Building, a Digital Arts and Media Building, a Library Learning Crossroads Building, a Maintenance and Operations facility, and expanded Automotive and Technical Education facilities.
- Renovations: the Performing Arts Building, Stadium Area, Horticulture Facilities, and existing classrooms will be upgraded to contemporary standards.
- Sustainability: a broad package of measures designed to maximize water and energy conservation and minimize the College’s ecological impact.
Dr. McCaslin encourages everyone to attend the Open House to discover how these and other vital improvements will ensure that Pierce College remains an important resource for the community.
