The Sheridan College Board of Trustees adopted a master plan in 2010, that includes several phases and outlines renovations and new construction on campus to address aging facilities and space deficiencies. Board Chair Kati Sherwood said that the college is currently serving over 2,000 students, compared to just over 1,300 a decade ago.

College President Dr. Paul Young says that there are three areas that they've prioritized for expansion and have submitted a 50 percent funding request to the State Legislature for consideration during the current budget session.

Trustees, at their regular meeting later this month, will have a chance to look over conceptual plans regarding the next phase of the master plan. Those plans include three projects: a fine and performing arts space, an enhanced education and activity center, and additional student housing.
