During these uncertain times in higher education, Lake Land College is making a bold commitment to its students.
“We want our students to know their goals are very important to us. With the Lake Land College Promise, they can register for spring classes with the confidence that their schedule will go as planned,” Lake Land College President Josh Bullock said. “As long as the class has six students enrolled, we will be teaching the class. If there are fewer than six students, we will do everything we can to work with the students to help them complete the class either on an individual basis or to find a suitable replacement.”
The Lake Land College Promise allows students to confidently plan their work and family obligations around their college schedule.
“Lake Land College Faculty want students to know we are here for them. The Lake Land Promise demonstrates our commitment to helping students complete the classes they need to successfully reach their educational goals at the pace they have mapped out with their faculty advisor,” Heather Nohren, academic counselor and president-elect of the Lake Land College Faculty Association, said.
“At a time when colleges are making cuts, our Lake Land College community is grateful to offer this opportunity to our students,” Bullock said. “We understand students rearrange their lives based on their class schedule and we want them to know they can count on us to honor that investment in their education.”
Lake Land College Student Trustee Adam Doty said, “This pledge will improve all students’ experiences by taking the worry out of the scheduling process. Lake Land students lead busy lives, so knowing the schedule we plan will remain intact is invaluable.”
Registration is currently open for the spring semester. Classes begin Jan. 11. Current students can register via the Laker Hub, while new students can get started by calling 217-234-5232 or visiting lakelandcollege.edu.
