OUR HISTORY

The STAR Campus is located on the former Chrysler site, which was an integral part of the surrounding community and we strive to build upon that legacy.

“Since 1953, I have seen many changes to the plant to improve tanks, cars and trucks. Now I see changes to improve the lives of all.”
