Greenville Education Center

The Kaskaskia College Greenville Education Center has been very successful at reaching, enrolling, and serving citizens in the Greenville area. This Center was created to make higher educational opportunities more accessible.

As a result of creating the Center, the College has been quite effective in serving a population that was not being reached because of variable time and distance factors which are so critical to students in acquiring a higher education, especially given the demands placed upon their lives.

The demands for additional educational programs along with limited enrollment opportunities at the present center (because of small classroom sizes) have caused the College to explore options for additional space. Thus, we have concluded that a larger facility is needed in the future to meet the demanding and changing needs in the Greenville area for higher education. We further see a larger Kaskaskia College Greenville Education Center as a site in which new programs can be developed and offered for the entire College.

The one–story 10,320 square foot Kaskaskia College Greenville Education Center is located at 209 North Third Street in Greenville, Illinois. The location is in an area where it is easily accessed and fully integrate all of the needs of the College for the Greenville area, by including space for Greenville College, Madison County Employment and Training services, as well as business incubator offices. On and off street parking is available in front of and behind the facility.

The building was previously occupied as a thrift store. Demolition of existing interior walls, dropped ceiling, light fixtures, and flooring was done and the installation of new interior finishes installed. Mechanical, electrical, plumbing and alarm systems are upgraded to accommodate the building re configuration, use and loads, as well as ADA compliance. Its construction includes insulated metal frame with metal corrugated vertical siding, metal roof, and brick veneer at the front on a reinforced concrete slab. It also has concrete floors with VCT, acoustical dropped ceiling, and gyp board furred walls.

Renovation of the property began in fall 2008 and completed in March 2009. A Grand Opening of the Center was held on May 28, 2009.
