Tyler TX — The TJC Board of Trustees approved today a bond election that would expand the western edge of the main campus.
The bond calls for construction of a new $50 million nursing and health sciences building.
Voters in the TJC tax district will decide on May 12 whether to pay for a $25 million bond package. The bond will be matched with $12.5 million in private donations and $12.5 million in student user fees.
Students majoring in nursing and health fields would began paying additional fees in the fall of 2011.
The board meeting took place at 11 a.m. in the White Administrative Services Center.
