Vol State at Highland Crest Progress Update

Civic leaders from Springfield and Robertson County had an opportunity to tour the new Vol State at Highland Crest facility on Friday. There has been quite a bit of progress in the last few months. Workers are finishing roofing and the installation of windows. The framing inside the building and the electrical are ready to go. Streets leading up to the new campus are under construction, with curbs laid and the road bed down.

Vol State and Austin Peay State University will begin offering classes in the fall of 2011. When completed Vol State at Highland Crest will be a 25,000 square foot, two-story building including: four classrooms; a multi-purpose room; a science lab; an interactive television classroom; a bookstore; a library; a learning support center; and ten faculty offices

Vol State will run the new learning center with an on-site director, faculty and staff. Hiring is underway for those positions. Vol State classes will include general education requirement courses that apply to most of the degree and program options at the College. A number of specific academic programs are also under consideration for Highland Crest.

The college facility is located just south of NorthCrest Medical Center in Springfield on Highway 431 and then turning onto William A. Batson Parkway. We'll have updates on our web page at:
