A Message From the President
Welcome to Lorain County Community College. Whether you are here as a new or returning student, a member of our community looking to learn more about your community college or a faculty or staff member – thank you for stopping by. I am proud to be serving as your president.
You may be asking what it is about Lorain County Community College that makes this institution different. What sets us apart? Well, I could easily talk about our world-class faculty; that a college education at Lorain County Community College is a great return on investment because our students pay the lowest net price of any community college in the state and command the highest earnings among all Ohio community colleges; the fact that we have a University Partnership that offers more than 50 bachelor’s and master’s degrees from 14 colleges and universities which saves students on average $50,000 on the cost of a bachelor’s degree; or the fact that we have partnered with K-12 districts across our community to create MyUniversity which has enabled 35 percent of all high school graduates to earn college credit before high school graduation, saving families in our community over $9 million in college tuition just last year.
But these facts do not paint a complete picture of what it is that makes LCCC unique. The Lorain County Community College family of employees consists of faculty and staff who are here for all the right reasons. We are here because we all believe that every student’s dream matters. And what a privilege it is to be helping individuals achieve their dreams and make a better life for themselves and their families.
That’s what drives us…the needs of our students and the needs of our community. And I want to hear your needs, your thoughts or even your LCCC story. I hope you’ll consider connecting with my by subscribing to the President’s Blog at https://president.lorainccc.edu as well as following me, @PresBallinger, on Twitter and Instagram. Meanwhile, explore all that Lorain County Community College has to offer as we strive to empower a thriving community through quality education, innovation and partnerships.
