LCC’s north campus to close May 30

Clinton County’s Regional Educational Service Agency (RESA) building has hosted LCC’s north campus classes for almost 10 years.
LCC North was relocated there officially on July 1, 2008.
The Clinton County RESA, located at 1013 South Old US-27 in St. Johns, will no longer be an LCC extension center as of May 30, 2018.
College President Brent Knight talked about why north campus is finally closing.
“Michigan is in a long-term decline of the number of 18 year olds,” Knight said. “And we have seen enrollment decline at north campus.
“With people having so many choices of how and when they will attend classes, including online formats, it was no longer feasible for us to keep that location open.”
Toni Glasscoe, the advisory board member for K-12 relations at LCC, explained what this change means for courses and instructors previously offered at north campus.
“The physical location of the north campus will no longer be available, but the number of courses taught will not be impacted,” Glasscoe said.
She noted that the faculty has been reassigned to other course sections and there will be online options available.
“LCC will continue to serve our Clinton County students with additional options, including dual enrollment and other K-12 services,” Glasscoe said.
“LCC is committed to the local community and we will continue to serve them. While talk of closing the campus has been discussed for some time, the final decision to close the facility was made in October 2017.”
