Delgado to open New Orleans East campus


NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Delgado Community College is getting ready to open a new campus in New Orleans East.

The $21 million Sydney Collier campus is scheduled to open in August. The money came from the state and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The campus will focus on construction, machinery and other trades.

Other area satellites are expanding, and the community college plans two more locations over the next two years.

Vice chancellor Stanton McNeely told our partners at New Orleans CityBusiness that much of the expansion is in response to calls from business and industry leaders. He said Delgado is working to become a comprehensive community college system in the New Orleans area.
