February 20, 2013
Officials at Wayne State University have announced plans to build a $12-million technology education center across the street from Macomb Community College's South Campus. According to a statement released by the university, Wayne State's Board of Governors approved the issuance of bonds to partially fund construction of the new Advanced Technology Education Center on a 3.5-acre site on 12 Mile west of Hayes. The planned 40,000-square-foot facility will reportedly involve renovating a vacant building that once housed a Farmer Jack store. "We are excited about implementing this next phase of the university's education strategy in Macomb County, which will serve as a center of excellence and a national model for university-community college partnerships," said Ahmad Ezzeddine, Wayne State's vice president of educational outreach and international programs. "We look forward to working with our partners at Macomb Community College and the Macomb business community to develop and offer educational research programs that meet the talent and work force needs of Macomb and the state of Michigan."
