The Greenville Higher Education Center (GHEC) is a collaborative effort of two state supported higher education institutions: Mississippi Valley State University (MVSU), and Mississippi Delta Community College (MDCC).
Located south of Greenville, Mississippi, on Highway 1, the three-story facility provides over 85,000 square feet of assignable space. Not only does the GHEC have eighteen classrooms and two art classrooms, it also has a distance learning classroom, a multi-purpose classroom, four conference rooms, a writing center, five computer labs, a nursing lab, and five science labs. The GHEC also houses a bookstore, a food court, a catering kitchen, a library, two gallery areas with over 1000 sq. feet each, and thirty-five offices.
The MDCC Charles W. Capps Jr. Technology Center, a division of Mississippi Delta Community College, provides customized training, education, and skills improvement to new and existing businesses and industries within the MDCC service area. The Capps Center's 30,000 square feet physical plant houses an office wing, a seminar room, food preparation area, and four high bay areas that occupy a total of 8,000 square feet of training space for mechanical, electrical, process and assembly skills. Classroom space, three computer labs, and a distance learning lab complete the accommodations available in the Capps Center.
The Capps Center, opened in 2001, is located in Indianola, Mississippi, on U. S. Highway 82, seven miles west of the Moorhead campus. This location strategically places the Capps Center at the geographical center of the seven county service area of Mississippi Delta Community College. A Cleveland native and long time appropriations chairman of the House of Representatives is honored in the naming of the Charles W. Capps Jr. Technology Center.
As a result of the continued increase in demand for class offerings in Greenwood, 20 miles east of the College's main campus, the College entered into a lease agreement for 5,000 square feet of space in downtown Greenwood during the spring 2003 semester to offer classes in academic, technical, work force training and GED beginning during the late spring of 2003.
Demand for classes increased in Greenwood during the summer of 2005; therefore, the College leased a 10,000 square foot facility on Park Avenue and begin offering classes in the new facility that fall. The Greenwood Center offers academic, technical, and GED classes as well as workforce training sessions.
