The Corporate College is located at 3221 McKelvey Road, at the crossroads of I-70 and I-270 just south of DePaul Health Center. This state-of-the-art 149,553-square-foot Class A building opened this spring and is part of the college’s growing network of facilities and programs bringing demand-driven workforce training to the greater St. Louis region. The Workforce Solutions Group, which operates the Corporate College, offers a robust set of programs and services at the facility through its units of Corporate Services, Continuing Education and Community Services.
