July 16, 2014 – Cerritos College officially opened the new Liberal Arts and DSPS (Disabled Student Programs & Services) Building with more than 100 people attending the ribbon-cutting event, including College officials, community members, dignitaries, faculty, staff and most importantly students. Located on the busiest cross street in the City of Cerritos, and now forming the first impression of the campus, the building has changed the perception of the campus and community landscape of the College. The facility provides an improved learning environment and support services to enhance student success.
The 40,000 square foot, two-story facility building consolidates Liberal Arts classrooms, DSPS and faculty offices into one location. The building features multimedia labs, instructional classrooms and a computer lab equipped with assistive technology for more than 1,500 students campus-wide with disabilities that includes text-to-speech software, voice recognition software, and specialized keyboards.
Project designed to achieve LEED SILVER. Funded by the College’s $350 million bond measure passed by voters in 2012 to modernize the campus. Read more.
“This new state-of-the-art facility will ensure quality education and equal learning opportunities for many more generation of student to come.”
– Dr. Lacy, Cerritos College President/Superintendent
