Construction could begin on a new Vincennes University advanced manufacturing training center in Lebanon next month. The Lebanon Reporter reports Mayor Huck Lewis has been working with the university for the last two years to try to attract a facility similar to one in Princeton. Lewis calls the opportunity a “gamechanger” for Lebanon.
Plans include a 20,000 square-foot city-owned building on S.R. 32 that would house the training center as well as other potential tenants. The property includes space to expand up to 100,000 feet, which Lewis says could eventually be used solely for Vincennes.
Vincennes programs in Lebanon could include computer numerical control or a machining program for veterans.
Lewis also envisions a possible curriculum partnership between VU and Lebanon Community School Corp. and possibly even offer courses at the high school level that could earn students college credit.
