Consistent with the College of the Desert Facilities Master Plan, the District will proceed with capital development of its Palm Springs Development Project in phases. New facilities will provide a regional workforce innovation center that will educate and train students for 21st century jobs and careers. The Project will provide a collaborative learning environment featuring a variety of teaching and learning opportunities.

Innovative spaces are planned including open and flexible environments with experiential labs and a high-tech digital accelerator space that will enhance student success. The Project will embody a sustainable campus philosophy that can feature best practice technologies, energy management and monitoring and stewardship of scarce resources. It is further anticipated that sustainability will also inform the curriculum, practical learning and work experience and be a demonstrable feature of the Palm Springs site. Concepts include an integrated mobility hub to accommodate a range of pedestrian, bike, bus, electric and shared vehicles integrated with local and regional transportation networks. Facilities and open spaces will be welcoming, safe and accessible.

A center of innovation and collaboration, the Project will offer continuing and custom education responsive to all ages.
