The expansion will provide local small and medium-sized enterprises with one-stop access to assistance through applied research from its faculty, staff and students including: pre-project market assessment, business services, technology projects, infrastructure and equipment, people and expertise, and post-project go-to-market plans.

It will also offer yet another opportunity for the college’s students to have meaningful hands-on experience in the community. Relationships with local manufacturers are in the works with Kwik-Mix and W.S. Tyler already on board.
