Southeast CC plans for regional expansion

NEBRASKA CITY- In a recent Nebraska City rotary meeting, Southeast Community College president Paul Illich announced the college’s strategic plan for the next four years.

These plans include additions of a health science building for the Lincoln campus, a Crete diesel technology and welding center to Milford’s campus, an excellence center in Beatrice, and a new learning center in Falls City.

Although the health science building will be set in Lincoln, Illich says that the Nebraska City learning center will be a beneficiary as well.

“We can actually do training here in the rural area from that Lincoln location,” Illich said.

Unlike the other learning centers in place, Falls City will be unique. Illich says that instead of using a pre-existing building, the 10,000 square foot Falls City learning center will include spaces for welding and manufacturing.

Illich also says that now with a learning center in Falls City being built, everyone in a 15 county service range will be within 35 miles of a learning center at any given time.
