Date: Friday, July 28, 2017, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Location: Rio Grande Jackson Center Campus, 980 East Main Street, Jackson, OH 45640

What/Who: The University of Rio Grande and Rio Grande Community College will host ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house to kick off the first full academic year at the new Rio Grande Jackson Center location.

About the Jackson Center: The Jackson Center first opened in the summer of 2015 to offer a close-to-home location for Rio and College Credit Plus students from the Jackson area. The center was created as part of a consortium funded by the Industry Workforce Alliance Grant. To continue serving the community with more opportunities for higher education, Rio moved into a larger facility during the Spring 2017 semester. The ribbon cutting ceremony will officially celebrate the move and growth of the Jackson Center as the staff and faculty prepare for the beginning of the center’s third year in the community.
