The Board of Trustees meeting on Wednesday, May 16, will begin at 5 p.m. with a pre-meeting tour-for the College trustees-of the River Glen campus, 11 River Glen Drive, Fulton. Members of the public who wish to participate can do so on a space-available basis. The College will try to accommodate people who would like to tour the facility.
The Board meeting itself should begin at 5:45 or 6 p.m. It will be held in the Ciminelli Project office next to the new campus building.
The College intends to move the Fulton Campus from its current 50,000-square-foot space in the Fulton Commons on West Broadway Street/Route 3 into the larger River Glen space.
The current architectural drawings increase the campus size to approximately 82,150 square feet, which includes a 31,000 square-foot second floor. The plans also expand the learning commons-a central hub that brings together the Library, computers, academic success resources, and flexible work spaces for students-from 8,000 square feet to 12,000 square feet; increases the number of classrooms from 21 to 34; and doubles the amount of the space for full-time faculty offices.
Construction on the new space is slated to be finished by early summer 2012, and the College will be ready to host classes there in time for the fall 2012 semester. The College will maintain its lease at the Fulton Commons site for at least the next four years, and will provide the space needed for the College to expand its workforce development and community education programming in the region.
