Collin County Community College District (Collin College) creates value in many ways. The college plays a key role in helping students increase their employability and achieve their individual potential. The college draws students to the county, generating new dollars and opportunities for Collin County. Collin College provides students with the education, training, and skills they need to have fulfilling and prosperous careers. Furthermore, Collin College is a place for students to meet new people, increase their self-confidence, and promote their overall health and well-being.
These new Collin College campuses in Allen, Celina, Farmersville and Wylie will expand the college’s capacity and allow it to positively affect a greater number of students, and, through those students, the economy at large.
The new campuses will create new jobs for additional faculty and staff and will increase the associated day-to-day purchases from county businesses. Additionally, Collin College will attract more students to the county and retain students in the county that would have left, thus positively impacting the county economy through the students’ spending. This will provide a steady stream of long-run spending impacts year after year. Lastly, as the students who would otherwise not have been served graduate, they will generate long-run benefits within the county.
