Published by The California Postsecondary Education CommissionApril 2001View Full Publication
The Sequoias Community College District proposes to establish an educational center to be known as the Center for Agriculture Science and Technology. It will serve as an off-campus center to the district's College of the Sequoias, located in Visalia, California. The new center will replace the district's current farm laboratory facility and enhance its capacity to serve students in the southern portion of Tulare County. Contingent on available funding, the proposed center will open in 2005 and serve an estimated 1,148 full-time equivalent students (FTES). It will provide comprehensive educational programs and enable the district to establish a new state-of-the-art home for its agriculture laboratory and associated academic programs. The proposed center will also relocate and consolidate current operational outreach efforts in Tulare. The new center will provide greater access to higher educational opportunities for an underserved population in the southern portion of the Sequoias Community College District and improve local community college attendance rates. In this report, the Commission finds that the proposal submitted by the Sequoias Community College District for the Center for Agriculture Science and Technology in Tulare County has met the review criteria established by the California Postsecondary Education Commission for a new educational center and recommends that the State authorize the proposed center. The Commission approved this report at its meeting of April 2, 2001.
