Bridgerland Technical College Announces New Health Sciences Building
As it celebrates its 50th year, Bridgerland Technical College is excited to announce final approval by the Utah State Legislature to begin construction on its first purpose-built 75,000-ft2 Health Sciences building.
“We owe a great deal of gratitude to our local legislators both current and past who have made this request a reality, including Logan City who supported us with infrastructure improvements,” says K. Chad Campbell, President of Bridgerland Technical College. “We also appreciate Governor Cox’s support in recommending this building as his one and only building priority in the 2021 General Session.”
“Since 2010, program admissions have been limited due to a lack of physical space. We are ecstatic this building will expand enrollment opportunities for students,” stated Executive Vice President Wendy Carter. “Our students are able to graduate virtually debt free in less than 12 months and ultimately will have a direct and immediate impact on Utah’s essential healthcare workforce.”
Technical education utilizes a hands-on, competency-based model where students prepare until they confidently demonstrate content mastery. This educational model has historically provided a near 100 percent pass rate on professional licensing exams.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has made the importance of health care workers in our community paramount,” says Lisa Moon, Associate VP for Health Sciences and Public Services. “This new Bridgerland Technical College Health Sciences Building is essential for the College to successfully train the healthcare workforce needed both now and in the future.”
