NORTH HAVEN, Conn. – Quinnipiac University has proposed converting the decommissioned Mount Carmel Christian Church at 5100 Ridge Rd. in North Haven into an adult education center, according to John Morgan, associate vice president for public relations at Quinnipiac.  

In March, Quinnipiac bought the 3.3-acre church property for an undisclosed sum. Real estate documents list the property’s fair market value at $643,400.

The initiative demonstrates the university’s commitment to lifelong learning and community engagement. The initiative represents a significant step in providing accessible education and development opportunities to adults in the community. 

“The university is seeking approval to convert the former church building into an adult education center,” said Morgan. Quinnipiac University will operate the proposed center to serve lifelong learning and professional development. It will offer a variety of courses and workshops in topics like business, community health, technology, and communications. 

Morgan said that fees would vary depending on the specific educational opportunities offered. “The public will register for many of the educational opportunities that will be available at the center,” he said.  

The center will feature two seminar rooms, each accommodating up to 50 people.

“While this project is still very early in the planning stages, our goal is for this new education center to provide continuing education opportunities for adult learners and career professionals,” said Morgan. 

This repurposing project aligns with Quinnipiac University’s goal to give back to the Hamden community.  

Mayor Lauren Garrett of Hamden said, “I am pleased to see Quinnipiac University is starting a certificate program. Economic Development is dependent on workforce housing and workforce development. As a Town, we are working to provide more housing stock and connect members of our community with continuing education opportunities. We have a huge demand for a workforce in our region that requires certifications that Quinnipiac will soon provide.”

As plans progress, the university and the local community will work together to meet the needs of adult learners and career professionals. Morgan said, “We look forward to working with the community and providing updates as the project progresses.”
