Renovation of acquired 110,000-square-foot multi-story open office building into an Administration Building and University Center; satellite campuses for Wayne State University and University of Toledo.
The College purchased the vacant building in 2013 at the corner of Seven Mile and Haggerty Roads, immediately adjacent to their campus. Administration saw an opportunity to support economic development in Western Wayne County, as well as expand their educational offerings to their community.
Opened one year later, the main focus for the new Jeffress Center, named after the current President, Conway Jeffress, is to offer Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programs through a unique university partnership with Wayne State University and The University of Toledo. The renovation also gave breathing room to the rest of the campus for academic and enrichment program expansion and the Master Plan is being updated to accommodate this institutional growth.
