Knowledge Park @ YCP

Where High Impact Learning Meets Real-World Innovation

In today’s highly competitive knowledge economy, institutions that understand the importance of cultivating partnerships between higher education, industry, and community partners are at the leading edge of problem solving and innovation.

The Knowledge Park @ YCP will provide a place for our campus community where high-impact learning will be activated, while also accelerating our region’s economic development. As York College evolves, we know our community will continue to grow alongside us. Whether we're providing a high-knowledge business with a place to call home or helping a student discover a passion for their future career, the Knowledge Park will create transformational opportunities.

Progress doesn't come naturally — it's built. And with this new revitalization project, we're building something that will develop a lasting legacy for our students, our partners, and all of York County. 

The Knowledge Park @ YCP will bring together industry partners, faculty experts, and York College students for innovative projects in the York community. Download a transcript of this video.

Helping Businesses Grow

The Knowledge Park will provide space-for-rent in a state-of-the-art facility that honors and reflects local history. The original building served York County for over 200 years as the Schmidt & Ault Paper Co.
