UT to cut ribbon on new facility at Schoolcraft

A new location is now open in southeast Michigan for students to earn a University of Toledo degree closer to home.

As part of the Schoolcraft to U partnership between UT and Schoolcraft College, the Jeffress Center on the college’s Livonia campus has been refurbished to look and feel like UT campus classrooms.

A ribbon cutting to celebrate the new Schoolcraft to U space will be 3 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 27 on the third floor of the Jeffress Center, located on the Schoolcraft campus on Haggerty Road between Six and Seven Mile roads. The event will feature Livonia Mayor Jack Kirksey, Livonia Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Dan West, UT Vice President for External Affairs Lawrence J. Burns and Schoolcraft Vice President and CFO Glenn Cerny.

The 10,000-square-feet of UT space in the building named in honor of the college’s President Conway A. Jeffress allows students to take univeristy program courses in that building, or online, to complete their degrees without leaving their neighborhood.

The Schoolcraft to U partnership features UT bachelor’s degrees in professional studies, criminal justice, health information administration and nursing.

UT provides scholarships to cover the out-of-state surcharge for Schoolcraft to U participants and works with students to coordinate student courses at Schoolcraft and UT to ensure a seamless transfer.

The Schoolcraft to U program also includes Wayne State University in midtown Detroit, which offers engineering technology and business courses.
