⚠LCC is operating - we're just doing things differently.
LCC will continue to operate remotely until further notice (a list of face-to-face and hybrid classes for fall will be posted on July 27). Medical Assisting, Nursing, Machining and Welding resumed limited lab activity on May 5. Applications for emergency funding assistance are still being accepted. - Learn More.
Our mission, vision and values define our reason for being, and provide the framework for planning and improvement efforts at LCC.
The mission of Lower Columbia College is to ensure each learner's personal and professional success, and influence lives in ways that are local, global, traditional, and innovative.
Our vision is to be a powerful force for improving the quality of life in our community.
Our campus community expects an environment of integrity, respect, collaboration, cooperation, inclusion, and innovation that fosters personal growth, academic excellence, and accountability.
LCC's Strategic Plan has four Core Themes that represent the different mission areas of the College:
We measure progress in each of our Core Themes through our Key Performance Indicators, which are presented annually to the Board of Trustees through a series of Monitoring Reports. See our Strategic Plan for a complete list of KPIs.
Every year we publish a list of Annual Priorities for the coming year in our Strategic Plan, which is based on review and assessment of progress on the Key Performance Indicators.
Strategic Initiatives make up an important part of our Strategic Plan.
Strategic Initiatives work in conjunction with our other planning and assessment processes to support continuous improvement.
