St. Charles Community College is in the final design stage for the first building to be located at its new campus in western St. Charles County, near the David Hoekel I-70 Interchange. Funded by the Proposition Community College bond program and grants received from the state, the Regional Workforce Innovation Center will be the premier education and technical training center within the college’s service area and the Greater St. Louis Region. Focusing on innovative programming to meet the current and future needs of business and industry, the 40,000 square-foot Center will include a variety of skilled trades, such as welding, heating/air conditioning and plumbing, as well as innovative technology focused on sustainable energy, robotics and more.

According to SCC President, Dr. Barbara Kavalier, “We take seriously our role in helping meet Governor Parson’s priority for workforce development and education. His focus on innovative and transformative projects that meet the needs of business and industry provided the impetus for SCC to develop a business plan for the Center. We appreciate his support in providing additional funding through the American Rescue Plan and the MoExcels Workforce Initiative.” 

SCC plans to break ground on the new Regional Workforce Innovation Center in the fall of 2023. For more information about partnering with SCC or to learn more about the Center, please contact Mr. John Wiemann, SCC Vice President for Workforce and Strategic Initiatives, and the SCC team at innovation@stchas.edu.
