The JWCC Agriculture Education Center is the product of a unique agreement between JWCC and the University of Illinois. University land was deeded to JWCC for construction of a teaching facility at the University of Illinois Orr Agronomy Research Center to be shared by the two schools. JWCC works with the land grant university to support the Orr Center concept of combining research and education. The University of Illinois Orr Agronomy and the 191-acre Beef Research Unit near Perry, IL in Pike County are available for both AAS and AS degree education purposes.
The Agricultural Education Center is equipped with computer labs, smart classrooms, a welding lab, machine shop and library.
