Herzing University will open a Kenosha campus in a former Aurora Health Care building in November.
The campus, at 4006 Washington Road near Bradford High School, will offer associate and bachelor’s degrees in technology, business, health care, design and public safety.
The property is being renovated to accommodate classrooms and computer and medical labs. Coursework begins online this month and on-premises courses will start in November.
The Herzing Educational System, which consists of Herzing University in the U.S. and Herzing College Canada, was founded in Milwaukee in 1965.
The career-college now has 14 locations and serves about 7,000 students per year.
“The focus of Herzing University is to help each student meet their main objective of career enhancement — by preparing that student for a new career or helping them to advance in their current one,” Herzing president Renee Herzing said in a statement.
Herzing University was recently voted the 2009 “Best School for Online Education” by readers of Corporate Report Wisconsin magazine.
