School Notes:

Founded in 1967, Lakeland was the first college in Ohio founded by a vote of the people. As a community college, making higher education accessible is a priority. The college continues to develop programs and classes to meet the needs of students, employers and the community. The main campus is on a 400-acre wooded site in Kirtland, only 30 minutes from downtown Cleveland. Eight connected buildings house classrooms, state-of-the-art computer and technology labs, student center and dining hall, bookstore, library, offices and services. The Athletic and Fitness Center, plus outdoor athletic fields, tennis courts and a fitness trail are located on campus. Mooreland, a business and education conference center is also located on the Lakeland campus. Off-site campuses at Lakeland East in Madison, Victoria Place in Painesville, and Shoregate in Willowick offer students the opportunity to take classes even closer to home. Lakeland Community College offers numerous programs of instruction and community services to fulfill its stated goals and objectives. The transfer programs emphasize the arts and sciences (the first two years of a traditional four-year college or university curriculum); the technical programs prepare students for employment at paraprofessional levels; and the community service programs strive to meet the needs of the college's service district through educationally related cultural and personal enrichment offerings. The associate of arts (AA) is normally pursued by students intending to transfer to a senior institution for the completion of a bachelor of arts or science degree. Typical areas of study may include: art, business, economics, education, English, geography, history, journalism, modern languages, music, philosophy, photography, political science, prelaw, psychology, sociology, social work, and speech. The North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools grants accreditation to Lakeland Community College. The college is a member of the Ohio College Association and the National Commission on Accrediting.

Students Stuck for Four Years to Earn an Associate?s Degree
A recent report revealed that many California community college students take twice as long to get an associate’s degree as is normally required. While community college is less expensive than attending a four-year institution, students who drag out their degree programs lose much of that savings in additional tuition, fees, textbooks, and lost wages. In this article, we examine the reasons why some students take so long to graduate.
Undeserved Community College Accreditation: Abuse of Power?
Complaints about the current system of accrediting community colleges, combined with the quickly changing scope of community college education and how it’s delivered, may soon necessitate changes in the way that community college programs are accredited.
Competency-Based Education: Better for Your Academic Success?
In recent years, interest in competency-based education has risen drastically. It is a form of learning in which students engage in self-paced instruction and assessment of aptitudes rather than attending traditional courses and receiving traditional grades. Seen as the future of community college education by some, and as a cheapened version of a real education by others, competency-based education appears to be here to stay.
