The $49.7 million Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) building is expected to open in 2024. The 41,865-square-foot, two-story building will feature laboratory and multi-use, computer-based instructional areas. The ability to provide distance learning will also be designed into all of the multi-use instructional spaces.

“This project will truly have a lasting impact on our students, some of whom will be the STEM leaders of tomorrow,” Dr. Roger Schultz, MSJC Superintendent/President, told the more than 100 people in attendance. “We have a lot happening right now at the Menifee Valley Campus and we cannot wait to celebrate the opening of this and our new Kinesiology and Athletics Complex with the community. This is an exciting time at MSJC.”

MSJC’s voter-approved Measure AA facilities bond will fund half of the STEM project while the state’s Prop. 51 will fund the other half. California voters approved Prop. 51 in November 2016 to authorize the state to sell $2 billion in general obligation bonds for community college projects.

Registration for MSJC’s Fall 2022 semester begins July 5. Classes begin Aug. 15.
