{mosimage}The State of Ohio’s 10-year Strategic Plan for Higher Education is to raise the educational attainment within the state year by year, and to close the gap between Ohio and competitor states and nations.  This will demand, according to Chancellor Eric D. Fingerhut’s comments in the strategic plan, that institutions of higher education fundamentally change the way they operate to become more responsive to the multiple ways student learn.

“Our colleges and universities are being challenged to re-examine their role, and explore innovative opportunities that will create new educational processes and campus cultures that align with the new economic realities and the needs of students,” said University of Akron President Dr. Luis M. Proenza. “Our new collaborative Midpoint Campus Center will enable us to be responsive to the unique opportunities and needs of this area.”

The Midpoint Campus Center is in the middle of an educationally underserved geographical sector where eastern Lorain County and the cities of Strongsville and Brunswick intersect on Route 42 and Boston Road in the Highland Square office building. Initial courses from LCCC and The University of Akron will begin in January of 2009 (spring semester).  

The Midpoint Campus Center has established a temporary location on the first floor of the Highland Square building, suite 115 for prospective students to meet with advisors and begin planning their schedules while the third floor of the facility is being configured for classrooms and technology. The education center is located at 50 Pearl Road. Academic advisors are available to meet with students from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday and Friday and from 1-6 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday. 

Initial offerings will focus on transfer module courses like college composition, sociology, psychology, mathematics, music history and accounting. Students will also be able to enroll in online courses from both institutions, giving them greater flexibility in building their schedules. 

This new center is in an area identified as the “Innovation Corridor” by the two educational institutions in their development of an Innovation Alliance.  The Innovation Alliance is a collaborative effort between LCCC and The University of Akron to align strengths and resources of both institutions to accelerate educational efficiencies and spur economic development in the “Innovation Corridor.” The “Innovation Corridor” stretches from Lorain County to the City of Akron. 

The University of Akron also provides bachelor’s and master’s degrees to Lorain County residents on the LCCC campus through LCCC’s University Partnership.
