In most respects, Columbus State is ideally positioned for this moment—academic programs are informed by greater employer engagement than at any point in the College’s history, and a relentless focus on affordability and student success puts meaningful, employable credentials in reach for students and families that stand to benefit most. But maximizing opportunities for students and fueling industry growth are not possible in mid-20th Century buildings with outdated technology.
The Educational Facilities and Technology Plan—adopted by the Board of Trustees at its September 2019 meeting—outlines recommendations for a comprehensive overhaul of Columbus State’s aging and outdated teaching facilities, infrastructure, technology, and physical plant. It builds upon the 2013 Master Plan, the comprehensive facilities and ADA assessments in 2017, and the most recent six-year capital plan submitted to the State. The College expects to implement this plan—which would be funded by a variety of sources—over a ten-year period, dramatically accelerating its positive impact on students, families, and the regional economy in the process.
