Trine opens Avon education center
ANGOLA, Ind. – Classes will begin in January at the Trine University School of Professional Studies’ new regional education center in the Town of Avon, a booming suburban community west of Indianapolis.
Trine entered a 10-year agreement with Avon, as part of the Avon Redevelopment Commission’s plan to revitalize economic development and continue to foster a growing education structure within the community. Within the agreement, town officials list the benefits as “educational opportunities to the citizens of Avon and employees of Avon’s businesses, increased income tax revenues as a result of jobs created at the site, and increased revenue to local businesses that will serve the university, its employees, and its students.”
“The Avon Redevelopment Commission is excited about this opportunity to bring another dimension in education to Avon.” Avon Redevelopment Commission president Jason Flint said. “The focus of this center is engineering which will give us a trained workforce that could bring more investment and jobs to our area.”
Trine plans to build numerous classrooms and labs for more than 10 master’s and bachelor’s degree programs in Beechwood Center, the site of the new education center.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for adults to complete bachelor’s and master’s degrees, making higher education more attainable for area residents,” said David Wood, dean of Trine’s School of Professional Studies.
As part of the agreement with Avon, the Avon Scholars Program II will be funded with $20,000 for each of the next 10 years to award scholarships exclusively to students that live within the Town of Avon who attend the Trine University – Avon Campus.
