A new multi-use higher education center is set to open on July 29 in Plainfield just north of Plainfield High School. The new facility known as MADE@Plainfield will house classrooms, laboratories, and offices. The 100,000-square-foot facility will provide training and degree programs to support job and career success for adults of all ages. Plainfield town leaders took a tour of the new building last week before the grand opening on Thursday, July 29th at 1610 Reeves Road. MADE@Plainfield is a collaborative partnership with higher education and workforce training institutions and resources, including Ivy Tech Community College, Vincennes University, Indiana Department of Homeland Security/Indiana Fire & Public Safety Academy, WorkOne, Hendricks College Network, the Town of Plainfield and Plainfield Community School Corporation.
“The post-secondary education and training offered at MADE@Plainfield will further bolster central Indiana’s ability to attract talent, create new jobs and deliver additional employee training opportunities,” said Brandy Perrill, Executive Director of Hendricks College Network.
“Area employers are seeking employees with specific, high-tech skills, and MADE@Plainfield offers a state-of-the-art facility to serve those educational and training needs.”
Courses will include industrial maintenance, general education, robotics, supply chain, CDL training, medical assisting, information technology, accounting, logistics, business, public safety training, and warehouse and distributing.
