Belhaven relocating ASPIRE to LeFleur Building
JACKSON — Belhaven University will relocate its ASPIRE degree program from its Jackson campus to the LeFleur Building, just north of the main campus, on I-55 Frontage Road in August.
Dr. Roger Parrott, president of Belhaven, said,, “The growth of our ASPIRE program and graduate enrollment has brought us to a wonderful but complex challenge — we are out of space for evening students on our campus. So, we are taking a bold step in August that will enhance adult students’ learning experience, make parking abundant, and allow students to learn in a first-class environment that reflects their career desires.”
The ASPIRE program will reside on the first two floors of the LeFleur Building and will house staff, faculty and students. A Belhaven University sign will be constructed on top of the five-story building, marking the new home of Belhaven’s ASPIRE program.
The administrative offices will be on the first floor, where students will have admission support in one centralized location. The second floor will contain 17 “smart” classrooms that utilize current technologies to increase students’ learning experience.
ASPIRE students scheduled for classes beginning in August will be the first students to benefit from the new facility. Office space for staff will be complete and occupied a few weeks later in September.
