October 20: Montgomery College, Montgomery County to Officially Open Shared Classroom, Business Incubator Facility
Building is College’s First Step in Developing an Academic, Business and Research Environment on the Germantown Campus

Montgomery College, Germantown Campus
20271 Goldenrod Lane, Germantown, MD

On Monday, October 20 at 11 a.m., Montgomery College and Montgomery County will celebrate the grand opening of the Goldenrod Building, a shared classroom and business incubator facility. Congressman Chris Van Hollen, Secretary David Edgerley of the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development, Delegates Brian Feldman and Charles Barkley, Senators Nancy King and Robert Garagiola, Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett and Montgomery County Councilmember Mike Knapp will join Montgomery College President Brian Johnson for this event. Also on Monday, the College will take a moment to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Germantown Campus.

The Goldenrod Building, which opened for classes this semester, provides valuable instructional space for our students and office space for faculty members and administrators. The College shares the building with Montgomery County Department of Economic Development, which has its newest business incubator, the Germantown Innovation Center, on the second floor.

The new Goldenrod Building is the first step in the College’s larger Germantown Development Project, which aims to create an integrated academic, business, and research environment on the Germantown Campus to benefit students, faculty, staff and the larger Montgomery County community. In addition to the Germantown Innovation Center, the project calls for the development of a Science and Technology Park and Bioscience Education Center. The 127,000-square-foot academic center will serve the rapidly growing science programs. The park, with one million square feet of business space, will provide an opportunity for students to combine learning with employment opportunities by simultaneously taking courses at the Bioscience Education Center and working in the park.
