IOWA CENTRAL COMMUNITY COLLEGE
ELECTION ON FEBRUARY 6TH, 2018!
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW!
BY BUILDING OPPORTUNITY
We’ve completed all publicly funded projects on time and on budget, returning your investment in us with a 6% return. Through our high school partnerships and dual enrollment programs, Iowa Central helps the average student save over $6,000 in college tuition before they even graduate from high school! As an affordable college option for your family, we intend to continue educating the best workforce in Iowa for Iowa.
GROWING STRONGER COMMUNITIES
THROUGH EDUCATION AND OPPORTUNITY
(Approximate cost for homeowner with $100,000 assessed home value is $12.00 a year. For a farmer who farms 500 acres with an assessed value of $2000/acre they would pay an additional $100.12 in property taxes or $8.34/month)
As our college grows, so do our needs as we continue to serve and equip members
of this region.
Our proposed $25.5 Million Dollar bond would be spent on the following projects.
High School Career Partnerships and Training
Career Academies are a chance to partner with local high schools within our district that gives students access to better career, vocational, technical training and education that could save them thousands of dollars in future college costs and better equip them for working in our communities.
Student Success Center
In order to improve our efficiency, we want to centralize all our student services into one building. A $3 million donation from the Greehey Family Foundation alongside raised funds from the referendum would create this one-stop shop for students.
Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Medicine
The demand for skilled workers in STEMM fields is growing in Iowa and our schools need to improve in order to keep up. Renovating our science and technology buildings would give Iowa Central firm footing alongside other colleges.
Webster City and Storm Lake Center Improvements
Will provide renovated and expanded training facilities to meet the needs of business and industry in the area and provide better access for our students and business partners.
Increased Safety and Security
The safety of our students is a top priority to our college. Improving locks, providing additional security cameras, and a public safety notification system would help ensure we do our best to keep students and faculty secure.
Iowa Central Fuel Testing Lab and Research Center
The current lab has outgrown its space and has expanded much more rapidly then expected. By relocating to the Ag Industrial Park west of Fort Dodge we will be able to co-locate with current and future biotechnology and bioproducts manufacturers and expose students to the opportunities in the agriculture and biosector industries.
Physical Infrastructure Improvements
We celebrated our 50th anniversary last year, and so did many of our buildings. In order to keep up with the educational demands and to maintain structural integrity, many of our facilities need updating. The referendum would help raise the needed funds to make our buildings better for your students.
