NMC to inaugurate newly renovated building

NORTHERN Marianas College will have a ribbon-cutting ceremony today for a newly renovated building.

The ceremony will take place at NMC Building K at 4 p.m., and representatives of the U.S. Office of Insular Affairs of the Department of the Interior will be present.

College officials will share with the visitors other NMC development plans and projects.

The funding for the newly renovated building came from OIA

The newly renovated Building K will house the faculty and two classrooms reserved for the academic program.

A scale model of Northern Marianas College’s seminal business and tourism/hospitality learning center. The proposed building complex was developed in 1998 to make the college a regional tourism center. NMC says an effort has been made to fast-track the project this year that would result in the conversion of the old dilapidated NMC flagship campus into a 21st learning environment, equipped with modern technology, estimated then at $7 million and today at $16 million-$25 million.

The NMC board, during a recent meeting, discussed the importance of having state-of-the art facilities that are up to par with the learning demands of 21st century technology.

“There is a need to modernize the campus consistent with optimizing learning in a more conducive and technologically equipped environment,” Regent William Torres told the board.

Although there is still a lack of funding, he said the board’s facilities subcommittee renewed its advocacy by fast-tracking the development projects this year that will result in the conversion of an old dilapidated NMC flagship campus into a 21st century learning environment.
