SLCC Fundraising Goal On Track For New Health Sciences Center


A little less thanĀ  23-thousand dollars is all that stands in the way of South Louisiana Community College reaching its fund raising goal for a new health sciences building. The project which will cost an estimated 17 million dollars to complete is on track to begin construction next year.

SLCC’s total fund raising commitment to the project is 2 million dollars,the rest of the funding is made up by Louisiana Community and Technical College System projects approved by the Legislature in 2013. SLCC needed to generate 12% of the cost of the project in order to qualify for this funding from the state.

The health sciences building will be housed on the Lafayette campus of SLCC and will allow students to work in tandem on a high school diploma and an associates degree. In fact one of the largest contributors to the project was the Lafayette Parish School Board.

Among the programs that will be offered with this new facility at SLCC is the Registered Nursing program. That program is expected to begin class room instruction next year and enrollment for that curriculum is already filled to capacity.
