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.
