DXATC plans new campus, gets $31 million in funding from Legislature

After waiting 10 years for a permanent home, Dixie Applied Technology College is $31.9 million closer to that goal. The Utah Legislature approved the funding during its 2015 General Session as part of a $14.4 billion budget which was proposed by Gov. Gary R. Herbert.

The building is planned to be 177,000 square feet and include both a professional wing and an industrial wing. The estimated price tag is $44.9 million. With state funding of $31.9 million, DXATC must cover the remaining $13 million. One wing of the new building would be for industrial programs such as welding, manufacturing and diesel technology; and the other wing would house professional courses including medical assisting, nurse assistant certification, phlebotomy and electrocardiogram technicians and more.
