The Peter Miller Community Technology Center will “not only be a first-class learning facility by itself, it also will free up about 30,000 square feet of space in the main campus,” according to IVCC President Jerry Corcoran.

The CTC is projected to be completed by January 2014 and will become home to nine career programs , plus student services. The front entrance will feature 30-foot-tall windows and the massive building will wrap around the existing Cultural Center.
