Oregon Governor Mark Hatfield presented the Lane Community College charter in October 1965. Since then, LCC has played a major role in community education, teaching job skills and providing a pathway to a four-year degree, as well as offering a broad array of enrichment courses. For the six-county area from the mountains to the coast, LCC provides award-winning KLCC radio programs.
Dr. Stephanie Bulger, LCC’s new president, will discuss LCC’s visioning process and its emphasis on enrollment, fiscal responsibility, and institutional culture. She will describe the new and continuing programs at the four LCC campuses – the main campus on East 30th and satellite campuses in downtown Eugene, Florence, and Cottage Grove – and how they met the challenges caused by the pandemic. Dr. Bulger will also update us on the way LCC is using the proceeds from the $121.5 million bond issue, passed in 2020, for new construction.
The first questioner will be Dr. Scott Coltrane.
