OGLESBY – The Illinois Valley Community College board’s facilities committee reviewed three future projects Wednesday. Upgrades were suggested for the Library/Student Success Center, Professional Development Center and the final construction phase of the Agriculture Center. The Agriculture Center will house a lab, classroom and student space, and will be built south of campus near the new ag storage building.

“An Agriculture Center with dedicated classroom and lab space is critical to student success,” said IVCC President Jerry Corcoran. “Having all equipment, supplies and tools in one location is essential to student learning.”

The Library/Student Success Center project will move the Student Technology Help Desk, Writing Center and Peer Tutoring Center from the Learning Commons to Jacobs Library. The Professional Development Center involves relocating the Center for Excellence in Teaching, Learning and Assessment (CETLA) into the current Learning Commons to become a resource site for faculty and staff training.
