New CGTC facility available for public use

MILLEDGEVILLE — Fall semester is in full swing as students, faculty and staff have comfortably settled into the new Center for Health Sciences facility at the Milledgeville campus of Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC). 

With a 5,000 square-foot versatile conference space, two computer labs and a meeting room available for public use on the first floor, area nonprofit, civic and professional organizations and groups dedicated to promoting education are encouraged to take advantage of the space equipped with the latest technology.

“We encourage organizations and groups to use our facilities. Visits to our campus promote community awareness and goodwill. We’re dedicated to quality education and complete and total professionalism,” said Becky Lee, CGTC vice president of economic development programs. “Any function or activity that takes place on our campus must be so dedicated.”

According to the facilities usage policy, CGTC limits the use of its facilities and reserves the right to refuse any request when it is deemed not in the best interest of the institution.

“Priority shall be for full and part-time students,” Lee said while referencing the policy. “School facilities shall not be available for groups or individuals for private gain. A meeting or series of meetings will not be approved when the purpose of the meeting is primarily profit-making in nature.”

Adequate meeting space and parking is available. Caterers can also cater for various approved functions. The large conference center can comfortably seat 200 to 250 individuals, or has the capability of dividing into a quad space.

“Each quad can has its own [audio/visual] equipment with internet access. A monitor that’s a little over nine feet is in the conference room and quad space as well. The conference room has 18 seats around the table,” said Brent Rosencrantz, CGTC director of the conference center. “We never had a space to accommodate groups of any size. We were always competing with credit classes so it was hard to schedule anything, but now we have space dedicated first and foremost to continuing education, development and certification.”
