A progressive partnership between Lee’s Summit R-7 School District, Metropolitan Community College, and the University of Central Missouri (UCM) is reshaping the way students experience education at the new Missouri Innovation Campus (MIC). DLR Group and design partner Gould Evans created a space that focuses on learner outcomes in an immersive and rich real-life workplace experience. MIC is a unique high-school program that prepares students for careers in areas such as engineering, computer science, health care, and creative sciences. In approximately the same time it takes students to complete their high school curriculum, they will have earned an associate degree from Metropolitan Community College, and can finish their four-year bachelor’s degree from UCM two years later. These benefits translate into earlier graduate, less college debt, and higher job placement. This high-tech, STEM focused facility supports a diverse and flexible program that will evolve as future careers are invented.
