Jackson County (Dec. 7, 2023) – On Dec. 5, 2023, the Rogue Community College (RCC) Board of Education approved RCC to purchase land adjacent to its Table Rock Campus (TRC). The addition of nearly 10 acres will grow RCC’s footprint in White City by more than 50%.
“While we remain rooted in Grants Pass and committed to RCC’s Medford campus, the opportunity to expand our facilities in White City allows RCC to imagine the campus in ways beyond prior conversations,” says RCC President Randy Weber.
The purchase allows the college to plan for Career and Technical Education growth more effectively and to identify ways RCC can provide better student supports at TRC.
RCC was able to secure the opportunity for future growth in Josephine County in November 2023 when Grants Pass council members voted to annex college property into the city. Without this action, RCC was capped at 3,000 more square feet on campus. As a result of the annexation, that restriction no longer applies.
For RCC’s downtown Medford campus, the college’s leadership is exploring how to better leverage its Student Success Center. Considerations include improvements, expansion or rebuilding. Environmental assessments are underway to better inform this decision.
In the coming months, RCC will be presenting to the board of education a list of facilities priorities developed by administration that are aligned with academic planning principles and other identified opportunities. This conversation will also include ways RCC can approach funding future projects.
