North Central Michigan College Celebrates Opening of New Borra Learning Center

PETOSKEY, MI — North Central Michigan College recently celebrated its new $7.4-million Borra Learning Center during a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Formerly known as the Administration/Classroom Building, the Borra Learning Center has been extensively renovated and features seven new high-tech classrooms and a new 3,000-square-foot Student Commons, which boasts floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the college’s Harris Gardens.

Named for lead donors Pier C. and Renee A. Borra, the Borra Learning Center is part of a $9.9-million campus enhancement project known as the Building Tomorrow Together campaign. The project was funded by a capital outlay from the State of Michigan and investments from North Central’s donor-partners.

Complementing the building renovation and addition, Building Tomorrow Together also advances North Central’s initiatives in several key areas, including:

  • Establishing a “First Stop” near the college’s busiest classrooms to provide centralized access to support services, including advising and counseling
  • Increasing STEM education and entrepreneurship across the curriculum
  • Expanding access to scholarship opportunities and student success supports

Neumann/Smith Architecture provided design and architectural services for the project, and Clark Construction Company oversaw the building’s construction.
