Delaware Tech presents 2010 budget request Delaware Technical & Com- munity College presented its Fis- cal Year 2010 budget request to state budget officials Nov. 13, at the Tatnall Building in Dover. President Orlando 1. George Jr. updated officials on the college's capacity challenge and how lim- ited space is undermining the college's mission to serve Delawareans and meet the needs of Delaware businesses. This up- date represents a continuation of the discussions related to the es- tablishment of a Community College Infrastructure Fund to support the growing capital needs of the college throughout the state. "We have not opened a new classroom facility since 1999. Yet since then, our enroll- ment has gone up 30 percent and our allied health and nursing en- rollment has gone up 160 per- cent," George told officials. "Without the ability to expand, students are being denied access, and Delaware businesses won't have access to the highly quali- fied graduates they need." George acknowledged a diffi- cult economy but emphasized that investment in Delaware Tech yields a high retu_na for the state. 'According to the Depart- ment of Labor, graduates with as- sociate degrees are averaging $52,000, which is more than twice as much as someone with a little bit of on-the-job training. When you consider that 95 per- cent of our graduates are Delawareans who will earn high- er salaries and increase the tax base, the state also benefits." In the presentation, George emphasized the college's short- age of science labs needed to ed- ucate nursing and allied health students in order to support the dramatic growth of the state's healthcare industry. Thus, the college's capital budget included a request for partial funding for a health sciences building at each campus.
