Sandhills Global Technology Center for STEM Education
Southeast Community College (SCC) is investing in the future workforce of Nebraska by creating a new Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) building on their 88th & O Street Campus in Lincoln.

It is anticipated that the following departments will occupy the building: Chemistry, Biology, Microbiology, Anatomy & Physiology, Biotechnology, Computer Information Technology, Design Drafting Technology, Electronic Systems, Physics, Geology, and Continuing Education. At the conclusion of programming and concept design, BWBR led SCC through the submittal process of the Coordinating Commission for Post-Secondary Education (CCPE) to validate the need for the project.
