New building, new degree programs at Aims Community College in Fort Lupton
A new building that will house new degree programs is currently under construction on the Aims Community College campus in Fort Lupton. The $9 million investment includes new classrooms, labs and 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 President Dr. Marsi Liddell. “It also shows our long-term commitment to the community of Fort Lupton.”
The new building will provide space for new degree programs in agriculture business, agriculture production, and oil and gas technology. Thanks to careful planning, the facility will also offer added benefits such as flexible classrooms designed to provide the community with meeting space able to handle groups of up to 200.
“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,” Liddell said.
The project will also include renovations to the existing campus building, which was constructed in 1984.
Plans call for the building to open by fall semester 2013.
