Vincennes University Jasper Campus was developed cooperatively by Vincennes University and COHERE, Inc. in February, 1970. COHERE, Inc. (Committee on Higher Education and Related Events) was a Dubois County citizens action group dedicated to the improvement of education and cultural enrichment for the area. It was founded by concerned citizens in 1960 and, having fulfilled its goals, was dissolved in 1978.
Completion of a two-story administration/classroom building in Fall 1974 enabled the Jasper Campus to move from temporary facilities in the central business district of Jasper to its permanent facility on a 130-acre tract south of Jasper on Indiana 162. A new addition completed in 1987 includes classrooms and faculty and administrative offices. Opened in 1987, the downtown campus facility, including both classroom and office space, houses continuing education classes and various federal programs. Alvin C. Ruxer, a Jasper businessman and member of the Vincennes University Board of Trustees, provided funding to construct the Ruxer Student Center,which includes a dining center, gymnasium, weight room, classroom and the Indiana Baseball Hall of Fame. The facility opened in 1990. The Arnold F. Habig Center began holding classes in the Fall of 1998. Named for Jasper businessman and University benefactor, Arnold F. Habig, this addition houses science, computer and technical laboratories. The campus library is also located in this facility. The new Academic Classroom Building, opened in spring of 2007, houses the nursing program, the Academic Support Center, computer labs and classrooms.
The Associate in Arts, Associate in Science, Associate in Applied Science and Bachelor of Science degrees and Certificates of Graduation are awarded through the Jasper Campus in accordance with degree and certificate requirements for graduation listed in this catalog.
