Upcoming Events


This year, Lane Community College is undergoing its comprehensive seven-year self evaluation. A big part of that evaluation entails a visit by peer evaluators for the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) which is the organization that accredits LCC as well as other institutions in the region such as the University of Oregon.

These peer evaluators are volunteer faculty and administrators from other colleges, trained by NWCCU, They will be coming to LCC on October 29, 30, and 31. During their visit they will want to visit with students, faculty, staff, and Board of Education members to hear about how LCC is doing.

You are invited to participate in a special session with students. This is an opportunity for you to tell them about your experiences at Lane Community College. To learn more about accreditation, attend the Preparation Workshop. If you want to have your voice heard, join the Student Forum with the peer evaluators.

To learn more about accreditation, please visit lanecc.edu/accreditation where you can watch a short cartoon on the accreditation visit or a four-minute video about accreditation. Lots of resources are also there including a copy of our self evaluation report.
