EICC to celebrate grand opening of Clinton Career Advancement Center
Eastern Iowa Community Colleges (EICC) is bringing the community together to celebrate the grand opening of Clinton Community College’s Career Advancement Center on Monday, Oct. 24, from 4 – 7 p.m.
Members of the community are invited to listen to remarks from key stakeholders, enjoy a tour, and chat with instructors. Light refreshments and appetizers will be served.
Located across the street from the college’s main campus building, the ultramodern 26,700 sq. ft. facility supports career and technical education training with multi-purpose laboratories, classrooms, faculty offices, and a large, common area. Programs offered at the Clinton Career Advancement Center include:
- Automotive Technology
- Construction Technology
- Engineering Technology
- Information Technology
- Welding Technology
The facility will also serve area high schools, through the college’s Career Academies. Career Academies provide high school juniors and seniors with the opportunity to explore desired career paths and receive college-level credits at no-cost, all while saving valuable time and tuition.
65% of jobs in the Clinton area require education beyond high school. The college is confident that the new center will serve that skill gap.
“The Clinton Career Advancement Center will provide a platform for members of our community to become trained in the jobs that exist today,” said CCC President, Brian Kelly. “This state-of-the-art facility is the realization of educators, industry, and community. We are excited to be bringing the latest technology and labs to help students pursue high-demand careers.”
The year-long construction project was imagined by Studio 483 Architects and Estes Construction. Funding for the center was made possible thanks to strong support of district voters, with more than 70 percent voting in favor of a $40-million bond referendum in March of 2021.
Parking for the grand opening ceremony is available onsite at 1210 11th Ave. S. in Clinton, IA.
