Aims Community College to break ground in Fort LuptonSubmitted on: 10-31-2012
GREELEY – Aims Community College will break ground for its Fort Lupton campus expansion at noon Friday, Nov. 9. The $9 million investment will provide classrooms and labs for new degree programs now being offered by Aims, along with a host of other improvements.
“This campus expansion is in response to the educational needs of our students and the requests of industry in Northern Colorado for specific workforce training,” said Aims Community College President Dr. Marsi Liddell. “It also shows our long-term commitment to the community of Fort Lupton.”
Earlier this year Aims Community College began offering new degree programs in Agriculture Business, Agriculture Production, and Oil and Gas Energy Technology. The new building will house classrooms and labs specifically for those programs. Plans call for having the building ready for use by the fall semester of 2013. Thanks to careful planning, the facility will offer added benefits such as flexible classrooms designed to provide the community with meeting space able to handle groups of up to 200.
The overall project will include renovations to the existing campus building, which was constructed in 1984.
“Aims Community College is offering educational programs today that will benefit our students and the employers of Northern Colorado well into the future. We are taking action to provide the resources necessary to continue this mission,” added Liddell.
The groundbreaking event is open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.
