LCCC is so dedicated to serving this community because it was built by this community. This is the community’s college—this is your college.
It all started even more than 50 years ago…
Following the Truman Commission (1947) which established the need for community colleges to serve local GI’s who were returning from WWII, dedicated citizens in Lorain County, including the League of Women Voters, worked to establish a community college in Lorain County, Ohio.
Lorain County Community College was granted a charter to serve Lorain County’s higher educational needs on July 15, 1963.
1964 – The citizens of Lorain County supported a 1.25 mil levy to fund their own community college with Max J. Lerner as the first president.
That year, Lorain County Community College’s doors opened in 1964 for the very first semester.
