Hill Country University Center Grand Opening - 9/23

Join us in welcoming Hill Country University Center to our community. The Hill Country University Center offers an innovative partnership to fill the critical need for nursing, education and business degrees as well as workforce training in the Texas Hill Country. Underserved and non-traditional students in our region, who otherwise may not advance their education due to economic or geographic barriers, are now able to begin or go back to school without interrupting their lifestyle. For its first eight years, HCUC and its academic partners used borrowed classrooms and administration spaces to fulfill its mission. The 24,000 sq.ft. Academic Center opened in the summer of 2010 including state-of-the-art classrooms, science and computer labs, student lounge and bookstore, and faculty support space. This beautiful, state-of-the-art facility includes four classrooms, two lecture halls, science lab, computer lab, bookstore, and support space for both students and faculty. This will enhance the offerings of our many educational providers and allow us to reach more deserving students in our region. The Academic Center will offer both day and evening classes. Our partners estimate an immediate 38 percent increase in student enrollment due to the increased capacity of the facilities. And having all academic partners under one roof offers a collaborative atmosphere, a seamless continuum of programs and more cost effective operations.
