Cleveland State Community College hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for its new Health & Science Center on Wednesday. This will be the first new building for the college in over 40 years.  

The new building will include Nursing, EMT and Medical Assistant Skills and Simulation labs, state-of-the-art biology and microbiology labs, five general classrooms, three conference rooms, student study and collaboration space, faculty offices and 2,400 square feet of multi-function space for classes and events. 

In order to gain access to the state funds allocated for this capital project, the college had to provide a 10 percent match of $2.5M to qualify for the full amount of $25M. 

Dr.
Bill Seymour, Cleveland State president, said, “I can’t really tell you how pleased we are to have received funding for this $25M project – the only community college in the State funded in this budget. This would not have happened without completing Cleveland State’s first capital campaign, which exceeded its 10 percent match requirement, raising over $3M.”

Dr. Seymour continued, “The support we received was overwhelming and we appreciate every gift, large and small.  We are very thankful to have many of our donors to our capital campaign here this morning.  We appreciate you all very much.”

Mayor Gary Davis, stated, “As an alumni of Cleveland State, I think I can honestly say it’s about time. I really appreciate the opportunity to extend my appreciation to those who made past students possible, current students capable and future students feasible…May this day, Wednesday, Aug. 28, be long remembered as the time that Cleveland State once again accepted the call to successfully continue to provide a stellar education within the walls of this new Health & Science building.”
