LCCC and OSU Rally

LCCC and OSU Rally

 

The Citizens for Lorain County Community College welcomed Ohio State fans and alumni to a rally in support of Issue 17 on October 20 in the College Commons, located on the first floor of the College Center building on the LCCC campus.

All fans, students and alumni of OSU and LCCC participated in a rally featuring OSU President E. Gordon Gee, The Ohio State Alumni Band of Greater Cleveland and LCCC President Dr. Roy A. Church.

Support for Issue 17 is critical because today’s economy demands an unprecedented level of higher education. LCCC provides convenient, affordable access to higher education for those seeking to update their work skills while preparing for new jobs. Enrollment at LCCC has more than doubled in the last decade as nearly 17,000 students attend classes annually on a campus built for 6,600. This 135% increase in enrollment reflects the needs of our community to prepare for careers in the new economy. However, this enrollment growth has been coupled with a decrease in state funding of 30 percent per student. This reduction puts a tremendous strain on the College’s operating budget.            

Issue 17 will replace the existing 1.5 mill levy that was passed 10 years ago, and add 0.3 mills. That is $1.44 more per month on a $100,000 home. Passing of Issue 17 will allow LCCC to continue serving the educational and workforce development needs of our community.
