Pellissippi State Community College has announced its largest expansion in 44 years with two new buildings including a new science and math building on its Hardin Valley campus this spring.

Pellissippi State will build a workforce development center on its Blount County campus. The college has launched a $10 million fundraising campaign, according to a press release sent Friday.

The new 82,000-square-foot science and math building will help Pellissippi State meet demands for classrooms and lab spaces that have increased due to Tennessee Promise and Tennessee Reconnect, last-dollar scholarships offered to high school seniors and adults without college degrees, respectively.

The total project cost for the construction of the new science and math building is $27 million while the total project cost for the construction of the workforce development center is $16.5 million. Details here.
