Founded in 1970 in response to a public referendum, Lewis and Clark held its first classes on the grounds of Monticello College, a small, private liberal arts college for women founded in 1838. Monticello College closed in 1971 and its picturesque and historical 215-acre campus became the beautiful main campus of Lewis and Clark Community College. In addition to these facilities, the College offers instruction in four remote Community Education Centers and in all public high schools in the Seven-county District. A campus complex in Edwardsville is being developed with the Edwardsville School District. The first building opened in Fall 2003 and the second building in Spring 2004. The College serves learners in a 1,800 square mile area of the lower Mississippi River Basin. Illinois Community College District 536 is bordered and bisected by the Mississippi, Missouri, and Illinois Rivers and includes all or portions of seven counties: Calhoun, Greene, Jersey, Macoupin, Madison, Morgan, and Scott. The two greatest rivers of the North American continent, the Mississippi and the Missouri, converge just five miles from the College campus. The College offers degrees in career and transfer programs as well as certificates. It also provides non-credit courses that serve a wide range of individual and community needs, including GED programs, adult education, ESL (English as a Second Language), personal enrichment courses, and special needs programs. Lewis and Clark regularly sponsors a multitude of sports, cultural and other activities and events that enrich the life of the community and support the economic development of the region. The college combines the best of the traditional and the new to provide an environment that is accessible and highly conducive to learning, social iinteraction, personal enrichment, physical development, and job skills enhancement. The college is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission - A Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, Illinois Board of Higher Education, American Dental Association, National League of Nursing and National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF).
