Sinclair Community College Completes Final Property Purchase for Courseview Campus Center
Courseview Vision Calls for 10,000 Students on 75 Acres in Next 25 Years
The Sinclair Community College Foundation purchased the final parcel of land necessary to complete the college’s long-term vision for an eventual 10,000 student campus in Warren County. The 3.4 acre parcel of land brings the total Courseview Campus Center to approximately 75 acres in total. Sinclair Community College and the Sinclair Foundation have combined to spend approximately $7 million in total to expand the Warren County campus.
“Our phased approach will make certain that the Warren County community has the resources it needs for continued job growth and economic development over the next quarter-century,” Sinclair President Steve Johnson said. “These acquisitions are a key part of the college’s plan to grow Courseview along with Warren County, one of the fastest growing counties in the state of Ohio.”
By the start of the 2013 Fall Semester, the goal is to have a renovated Building B (formerly the Stress Engineering Building located next to the current Courseview building). This will bring the Courseview campus capacity to 2,500 students. Additionally, Courseview students will have their choice of 17 degree and 18 certificate programs. The college’s goal is for all renovations to be complete by the start of the 2013 Fall Semester. No Montgomery County levy dollars have been or will be used for this expansion.
“This is another demonstration of Sinclair's commitment to expanding educational opportunity in Warren County and all of Southwest Ohio,” Sinclair Community College Board of Trustees Chair Barney Wright said. “Students in this community, their families and employers will benefit for the foreseeable future and beyond as a result of the investments we have made and the training and education we will continue to provide.”
