President’s Message

LCCC President Marcia J. Ballinger, Ph.D., shares a Community College Month message:

April is Community College Month, providing a moment to broadly share the important impact of our nation’s community colleges.

At LCCC, community is our middle name. LCCC’s history of serving the community stretches back to 1963 when the need was recognized for a local college to create higher education access and a bridge to gainful employment. For nearly six decades, LCCC has helped Lorain County adapt and thrive through prosperity and challenging times. The college has conferred more than 50,000 degrees, and helped prepare local people for jobs right here in Northeast Ohio.
