LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A new $16 million, 60,000-square-foot health and sciences building for South Louisiana Community College is on a list of more than $245 million in community and technical college projects proposed for legislative approval in the upcoming session.
The Advocate reports Louisiana Community and Technical College System President Joe May made the comment about the project during a visit to the SLCC campus Tuesday for meetings with staff and faculty to explain the system's goals for the upcoming session.
May said the Lafayette project is one of 24 planned at 14 campuses across the state to increase space for in-demand workforce training programs.
The cost of the proposed construction package is $245.5 million with campuses required to find private donors to fund at least $18.5 million toward the projects.
