Investment in Harrison Campus—2019-2020 Renovations

Understanding that the College’s mechanical systems needed to be consolidated and replaced, Mid saved for a major renovation. The College’s reserve funds, a municipal bond, and a special allocation from the State have made the dream a reality. Nearly $13 million was invested to position Mid as one of the most energy-efficient community colleges in the State, moving the Campus closer to self-reliance by lowering its operational costs.

Project Features

  • Allows for 25% enrollment growth in Harrison
  • Upgrades electrical and mechanical systems to reduce energy and financial waste
  • Provides new spaces for veterans, campus food pantry, fitness center, library, wellness areas, campus store, and café
  • Adds improved technologies in classrooms, student spaces, and conference rooms
