Renovations at the Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Ebensburg Center include changes that “right-sized” the facility to create a more useable, inclusive workspace better equipped to ensure future success for students. These changes include a new student lounge, a work room for Education students to create their projects, and a new crime scene lab for Criminal Justice students.

This major update also included new outdoor signage, providing a visible and vibrant display to those traveling on Route 22. And, in early 2021, new furnishings are set to be delivered and placed in the facility.

In addition to the ribbon cutting, tours of the updated facility were provided to those in attendance.
