Richland Community College is located in Decatur, Illinois, the heart of Central Illinois. Richland serves its District with the main campus, in Decatur, and two extension centers. The College’s main campus resides on a site of 155 acres of land. Following substantial growth and expansion, Richland currently contains 293,590 square feet.
Richland moved into its permanent home during the fall of 1988. With a commitment to serving the citizens of our District, the College has added three new wings to the main campus: the Industrial Technology Center in 2002, the Schrodt Health Education Center in 2003, and the Dwayne O. Andreas Agribusiness Education Center in 2007. In Spring 2009, the Adele P. Glenn Academy for Early Childhood Education opened, and the new Fitness Center was unveiled. The Industrial Technology Center was renamed the Scherer Industrial Technology Center in April 2009, in honor of the $6.8 million contribution to the College made by Walter and Alice Scherer. The Center for Sustainability and Innovation opened in July 2009, with the University of Illinois Extension Office located on the first floor. The Innovations Lab on the second floor opened during the fall of 2010.
