A spirit of innovation in higher education has blossomed throughout Lorain County. This spirit has been encouraged by many things - chief among them the development of the University Partnership program at Lorain County Community College.

More than 4,000 people have earned bachelor's or master's degrees through LCCC's University Partnership since it began impacting the lives of Lorain County residents in 1996. The University Partnership is Lorain County residents' pathway to bachelor's and master's degrees as 12 colleges and universities, including The University of Akron, offer more than 40 degrees on the LCCC campus.

"The University Partnership is an innovative model that increases access to higher educational opportunities. It has helped prepare the citizens of Lorain County for the development of a new economy in Northeast Ohio," said Akron President Dr. Luis M. Proenza.

"By the year 2020 we know that 60 percent of all jobs in Ohio will require a college degree," Proenza continued. "Employers need a workforce that is skilled and knowledgeable."
