A mission to educate our region
Thriving communities nurture, attract and retain an educated workforce. Training and education lead to higher incomes, successful business and industry, and a better quality of life.
To help prepare southwest Michigan for the careers of today and tomorrow, Lake Michigan College is developing the programs, services and facilities that create first-class student experiences that draw people of all ages and backgrounds to pursue higher learning.
Why is this important? Because by the year 2020, more than 70% of Michigan jobs will require some training after high school, yet only 37% of Berrien County residents and 29% of Van Buren County residents who are working age have earned a post-secondary credential.
