Spencerian College is scheduled to begin classes Jan. 2 at its new campus at 4000 Dupont Circle within the Dupont Circle Medical Complex in Louisville, Kentucky.
Spencerian plans to begin moving from its existing Shively location during finals week Dec. 11-15, said Spencerian College Executive Director Jan Gordon.
“We will start the move during finals, but will make the major move the following week,” Gordon said. “Everyone is very excited about the move and our plan is to be moved in for registration and orientation, which is Dec. 27th, 28th and 29th.”
Located at the intersection of Breckenridge Lane and the Watterson Expressway (I-264), The Dupont area is the largest regional medical complex outside of downtown Louisville and add to the medical facilities, career opportunities and services available to Spencerian students in the new location.
Spencerian, which is part of The Sullivan University System, is known for its successful focus on healthcare-related programs, careers, skills enhancement and training. Among its most popular programs are Nursing, Surgical Technology, Radiologic Technology, Medical Assistant, Medical Lab Tech and Respiratory Therapy.
Name Change Ahead
Initially, Spencerian College will operate under its current name at the new location. But eventually the name will change to Sullivan University. The university system announced earlier this year that Sullivan University, Spencerian College and Sullivan College of Technology and Design are being merged into a single entity that will operate as Sullivan University. The merger is expected to be completed by June of 2018.
The new Dupont facility will house The College of Allied Health and The College of Nursing.
“We are excited to be close to the medical providers and healthcare companies located at the Dupont Circle Medical Complex,” Gordon said. “We hope to work with the local medical community by providing meeting and training space, and working with the employers on their needs.
“Moving to a new campus location provides tremendous access to major employers in Louisville’s healthcare industry and will provide the opportunity for more collaborative, interprofessional education and career opportunities for our current and future students and the medical community,” she said.
