A new Delgado Community College campus opened today in New Orleans’s Desire neighborhood. The Sidney Collier campus will initially focus on courses in cosmetology, barbering, H-VAC, electrical work and nursing.
The new building is on the former site of a popular technical college that was destroyed in Hurricane Katrina. It gives access to courses geared towards industries that are thriving locally to people living in the Eastern part of the city.
Thomas Lovince is the executive dean of the new Delgado campus.
