This year, Lane Community College celebrates 50 years of student success.

When our students achieve their dreams, so does our community. People are sometimes surprised to learn that nearly 10 percent of Lane County residents are enrolled at Lane. But it's not that surprising when you think about it – whether it's a transfer student preparing for their future studies, a diesel mechanic learning her trade, a chef in training, an older adult making a career change, a community member taking a language class, an entrepreneur getting their start through our Small Business Development Center, or a nurse getting her bachelor's degree from OHSU here on our campus – Lane is the hub of our community's education.

Since voters founded Lane in 1964, we have met the changing needs of students, the community and businesses.

Today, Lane is your gateway to a four-year university, your path to a career, and a resource for the community. Our outstanding faculty, staff, and community partners are focused on students and ready to help you achieve your goals.

It is a special honor to celebrate the success of our students over the past 50 years, and to look forward to a vibrant future.

Mary Spilde, President
