Delgado Community College is getting ready to open a new campus in eastern New Orleans.
Other area satellites are expanding. And it plans two more locations over the next two years.
Vice chancellor Stanton McNeely tells New Orleans says much of the expansion is in response to calls from business and industry leaders.
He says Delgado is working to become a comprehensive community college system in the New Orleans area.
The $21 million Sydney Collier campus is scheduled to open in August in eastern New Orleans. The money came from the state and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
McNeely says that campus will focus on construction, machinery and other trade classes.
