Rock Valley College received 21 proposals responding to the college’s Request for Proposal (RFP) process to house the new Advanced Technology Center at locations throughout the RVC community. The proposals have been under review by the Rock Valley College Board of Trustees who will determine which proposal they will accept on behalf of the people of Community College District 511.

The Advanced Technology Center will house course curriculums aimed at employment for both employees and employers. The manufacturing sector needs workers with the skills necessary to run the machines that produce the products. The goal of the ATC is to target individuals seeking to further their high school education and job opportunities through an education steeped in the latest technology.

“We have received an overwhelming response from potential developers with locations across our District 511 community footprint. A successful RFP process is marked by the receipt of many qualified proposals and that is what occurred here. The RVC Board of Trustees will now be able to choose from various proposals including, cost, locations, timing for the completion of the project, and options for future expansion,” said Interim RVC President Beth Young. 

“Our RVC Board of Trustees heard and answered the call for a ‘community discussion’ about the location of the Advanced Technology Center. Our community responded as well by providing us with a myriad of proposals. We are proud of our history of community involvement here at RVC and our Trustees are proud to serve all of our constituents. The college has just taken one more definitive step toward achieving our community goal of ratcheting up educational opportunities tied to the needs of employers who are ready to hire our graduates,” said RVC Board Chairman Patrick Murphy. 

Rock Valley College District 511community includes all, or part, of Boone, Dekalb, McHenry, Ogle, Stephenson and Winnebago counties.
