Groundbreaking for Student, Academic Support project

Southeast Community College’s Lincoln Campus is undergoing a $30-million facelift that will change the look and feel of the campus. A groundbreaking ceremony was held on Wednesday, April 28, on the Lincoln Campus.

“It will be a classy, welcoming and transparent space that will create a cohesive connection between support services and students,” said Bev Cummins, vice president for student affairs and Lincoln Campus director.

SCC President Dr. Paul Illich, members of the Board of Governors, students, faculty and staff all came out for the groundbreaking ceremony. The Student and Academic Support renovation started in March. Around 80,000 square feet of the main building will be completely renovated, while 25,672 square feet of new construction will be added. It’s scheduled to be complete in April 2023.

“Future students will be truly excited by all the changes at SCC,” said Braeden Perkins, SCC student. “The future is bright for the College.”

Departments/areas impacted by the renovation and addition include advising, adult education/English as a Second Language, instructional design/virtual learning, information technology, library resource center, student activities center, student enrollment and accounts, student success center, safety/security, campus office, student development and engagement, testing center, tutoring and transitions center, and the veteran’s connect center.

Alley Poyner Macchietto Architecture is the architect for the project, and Boyd Jones is the Contractor. Both are Omaha-based businesses.
