Collin College's original campus, Central Park Campus (CPC) was transformed through
a major renovation project completed in 2010. The campus features a Jeffersonian-style
library, expanded classroom space, science labs, Central Perks Cafe, and a parking
structure as well as an expanded Student Development area. Construction is now underway
for the new Health Sciences Center, a conference center and additional parking. The
campus expansion aligns with Collin College's Vision 2016 Strategic Plan, Strategic Goal #2, Expected Result 2.7: The Central Park Campus Master Plan will be enhanced to include elements of a comprehensive
campus and a Health Sciences facility that will establish Collin College as a Health
Science Hub for the region.
In addition to offering a full range of transferable general education classes, the campus is home to nationally recognized Health Science programs, including Dental Hygiene, Emergency Medical Services, Fire Science, Health Information Management, Nursing, Polysomnographic Technology, Respiratory Care, and Surgical Technology. In July 2011, Collin College's nursing program was named a Center of Excellence in Nursing Education by the National League of Nursing, Texas' first and only Center of Excellence. In 2013, Collin College's Respiratory Care Program received the Distinguished Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) Credentialing Success Award from the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC).
