NCTC closer to Downtown Denton Campus

Elizabeth F. Abu | May 24, 2018

Regents of the North Central Texas Community College District took another step toward establishing a Downtown Denton campus at Monday’s meeting. They approved a resolution authorizing the execution and delivery of a lease-purchase contract for the district’s use of leased property as an educational facility.

NCTC initially published the notice of intent to enter in to the lease-purchase contract in October 2017. The property is the former Denton Record-Chronicle building located at 316 E. Hickory Street in downtown Denton.

Vice Chancellor of Fiscal Affairs Dr. Janie Neighbors gave a financial report to the board, reporting normal fiscal activity and Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Dr. John Maduko gave an enrollment report. The overall Spring 2018 enrollment, including 16 week, 1st 8 week, 2nd 8 week, and Spring Mini-mester, totaled 9,442. That is an increase of 7.1% from 8,818 in Spring 2017.

Regents also approved NCTC’s participation in the U.S. Commodities Government Purchasing Alliance. This will allow the college to purchase from additional vendors, including Amazon.

Finally, regents accepted the resignations of Speech Instructor Dianne Gravley and Office Systems Technology Instructor Dawn Dias.

Regents Karla Metzler and Patsy Wilson were unable to attend Monday’s meeting.
