Sheridan College enrollment is expected to increase by about 25% over the next few years. Expanding the educational, employment and economic benefits and opportunities are among the strategic goals for Sheridan College, outlined in their development plan, "Vision 2020." Specifically, the plan recommends enhancing the culinary, performing, and visual arts, as well as expanding the health and technical education programs at Sheridan College.
However, doing so may require some facility renovation and construction. How to fund these projects was the focus of a "mini-retreat," hosted by the Sheridan College Foundation, held yesterday at the college. Foundation Executive Director, Susan Bigelow
According to planning documents, one of the first priorities is to construct a campus center, which would include a laboratory building, modernized classrooms and expanded dining facilities. The goal of these improvements is also to expand baccalaureate and master's degree programs available in Sheridan and to provide training and education services for veterans.
This Thursday, the Sheridan College Board of Trustees will vote on a request to the College Foundation to lead capital campaign for these projects.
