LCCC's New Academic Division Structure
Lorain County Community College has reorganized and consolidated academic divisions. This new academic structure creates a more efficient organizational structure and is more reflective of today's higher education environment.

As a result of this process, academic programming previously offered through the Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Student Life division now falls under the Allied Health, Nursing, Health, Physical Education and Recreation division.

Student Life and Athletics are now under the leadership of the University Partnership.
