Sinclair’s board of trustees recently approved a resolution allowing the administration to negotiate and eventually execute a 10-year lease for classroom space and other space that will be used for workforce development and service learning, according to Sinclair.

Sinclair will also work with Omega to find ways to offer college-credit and non-credit courses at the center, to create internships for Sinclair students, provide community health screenings and experiences for Sinclair’s early childhood education program.
