“Each year, 2,500 IT jobs go unfilled in Northeast Ohio. It is exciting that LCCC is able to bring these programs that will prepare students for these jobs to this area,” said John Crooks, Associate Provost of the LCCC University Partnership program. “Some of these programs will be phased in, so I encourage everyone interested in training in these areas to come to an information session to learn what’s in the works at the UPRC.”

UPRC is conveniently located in North Ridgeville on Lorain Road adjacent to the Interstate 480 east entrance ramp.
