Mid-Missouri schools launching ‘Innovation Campus’

With help from a $1 million state grant, Linn State Technical College and Lincoln University are working with three area high schools to improve information technology training.

Their work is part of the “Central Missouri Innovation Campus,” or CMIC — part of a total of $9 million in grants that Gov. Jay Nixon announced last year.

Innovation Campuses will train students for career opportunities in high-demand fields, cut the time it takes to earn a college degree, and reduce student debt, Nixon said when he announced the Mid-Missouri grant last Aug. 1.
