SPSCC is set to open its new Center for Transition Studies on Tuesday, Dec. 12, 2017.  Located next to the Student Union Building in the heart of campus, the center is the new setting of the Transition Studies (TS) programs and offices.

“Transition Studies areas are often literally and metaphorically positioned in the periphery,” said Associate Dean of Transition Studies Dawn Murphy.  “The location of this building on campus says that TS students belong here.”

Building 28 when it was still the libraryTS programs located in the new center are dedicated to the success of adult learners.  Programs include Adult Basic Education, English as a Second Language, High School 21+ and GED, Integrated Basic Education and Skills Training, Integrated English Language and Civics Education, and Intensive English for International Students.

The center, also known as Building 28, was built in 1989 and was originally the college library.  After the library moved to the Center for Student Success in 2013, the space temporarily housed administrative offices until the remodel began in March 2017.  The center includes four general classrooms, two computer labs, conferences rooms, study rooms, and faculty offices.
