According to Dr. Bob Collins, chair of the Collin College Board of Trustees, the Wylie campus will make higher education more convenient for southeastern Collin County.
According to Collin College District President Dr. Neil Matkin, the slated expansion is an important point in North Texas history and Collin College hopes to continue to provide quality higher education for the lowest tuition in the state.
Last year, the college’s trustees conducted in-depth studies on demographics, educational statistics, labor market demand, community impact and academic program opportunities for the long term.
