Jackson College's Bert Walker Hall is over 40 years old and has had no significant renovations made to it. This project includes a renovation of the 57,000 square foot existing building, as well as an expansion of an estimated 20,000-30,000 square feet for classrooms, student learning spaces, admissions, student services, developmental education, counseling, disabilities support and advising, and offices. In addition to the renovation Ken Thompson has been commissioned to create a piece to be used as the 'new front door to the campus. The title of the piece is "There Are No Short Cuts To Anyplace Worth Going." The title comes from a quote by Beverly Sills an opera singer.
