Quote from the President

“Laramie County Community College (LCCC) focuses first and foremost on our students. Our health science students consistently pass their national boards at a rate in excess of 95 percent. Our nursing program recently achieved full compliance in its reaccreditation—an achievement few schools can claim—and our workforce and professional development department has added three new classes to specifically address the needs of local industry and provide immediate jobs for our students. We are truly a comprehensive community college.”
