Vision 2020: Empowers a Thriving Community

In September 2015, Lorain County Community College’s Board of Trustees adopted Vision 2020 – a refreshed strategic plan outlining the College’s mission, values, priorities and initiatives – which will guide the College through the year 2020.

“Vision 2020 sets the course for the College looking toward 2020. It builds off of the progress made to date in fulfilling our current strategic plan, Vision 2.0, while responding to a rapidly changing environment,” said LCCC President Dr. Marcia Ballinger. “Vision 2020 clearly defines our commitment – as the community’s college – as to how we can best serve the needs and aspirations of this community.”
