STLCC Transformed

St. Louis Community College is modernizing facilities and programming to meet the job training and retraining demands of Missouri.

From Prop R to STLCC Transformed

Thanks to the citizens of the St. Louis region who voted to approve Proposition R in 2021, we’re moving forward with STLCC Transformed. Collectively, this initiative aims to bring the College into a more modern standing by providing facilities and programming for the growth and competitiveness of our region.

We understand that voters are interested in how we will move forward with the use of the funds supplied by the passing of Prop R. And so, as part of the College's commitment to transparency and responsible spending, this web page aims to share details on the progress of STLCC Transformed.

STLCC Facilities FAQs

Most of the buildings at the three main campuses (Meramec, Forest Park and Florissant Valley) were built in the 1960s, 60 years ago. Since then, careers, training and technology have changed dramatically, and the learning spaces needed to prepare today’s students are also very different.

The 60-year-old buildings have antiquated building systems and infrastructure, as well as disjointed, small rooms that lack the infrastructure to support the needs of the current educational programming and priorities. There is also an insufficient amount of laboratory and multipurpose flexible spaces but an overstock of large, underutilized, low-demand inflexible spaces such as gymnasiums, pools, and cafeterias.

Each year, the College spends approximately $4.3 million on repairs and maintenance of its buildings. More than $150 million in maintenance, repairs and updates have been identified through formal facility studies.

STLCC opened the Center for Nursing and Health Sciences at Forest Park in 2019. The Center features the latest technology and hands-on clinical learning spaces to help address the St. Louis region's growing healthcare workforce needs. More than 900 students per year prepare for careers in nursing and health science professions in this building.

This $40 million facility was built through a combination of private donations and a small bond issue that was paid for through the general operating fund and the sale of the College’s downtown corporate office building. This type of funding is not available to meet the more than $350 million in facility needs and additional program updates necessary to meet the needs of students and local employers.
