ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY CENTER EXTENSION
at LOUISIANA DELTA COMMUNITY COLLLEGE
This extension to Louisiana Delta Community College's Advanced Technology Center provides adequate space to bring the industrial instrumentation, process technology, and industrial maintenance programs under one roof. The need for a building which united these three specific programs was born through a partnership between Graphic Packaging, a major contributor to the Monroe-West Monroe economy, and LDCC. Officials from Graphic Packaging looked to LDCC to help them train their next generation of workers. Job candidates trained in industrial instrumentation, process technology, and industrial maintenance were of great need to the company. While all three of these programs were offered by LDCC, only two were taught at the Monroe campus, the other being taught at the West Monroe campus. This presented a problem for students of those programs training for positions within Graphic Packaging - they had to commute from campus-to-campus to attend classes. With this expansion to LDCC's current Advanced Technology Center, students are able to maneuver classes much more easily.
Expanding the existing ATC complements the goal of creating a world class workforce development center and strengthens the partnership with the business community in Northeast Louisiana. This expansion addresses current and future needs of the ATC and will keep the ATC's training techniques and their state-of-the-art hardware current with the job market skills required in Northeast Louisiana.
