Lakeland Community College partnership

The Weekend College has always sought to embrace and enhance our relationships with local community colleges.

For years we have had a good working relationship with Lakeland Community College where their graduates have seamlessly transferred to Hiram to earn their bachelors degree.  For some of their students that process took as few as eighteen months.

We are continuing this process through our new University Partnership with Lorain County Community College (LCCC).  The program is designed so that 50 percent of this partnership is LCCC coursework, and the final 50 percent is Hiram College coursework.  Hiram College courses are taught by Hiram College faculty either in person or via distance learning.

Hiram is currently offering Accounting and Financial Management and Integrated Environmental Studies degrees at LCCC's campus through this partnership. 

The Center for Engaged Ethics hosts an annual Campus Day, where students get a day off from classes to perform community service.
In March 2012, the Center for Integrated Entrepreneurship hosted the Entrepreneurship Education Consortium's idealabs 2012 competition. Several area colleges attended.
The Center for Literature and Medicine began a Disease by Performance course for the 2011-2012 academic year, where students wrote a play about autism, and performed it across the state to raise awareness.
The Center for Scientific Engagement regularly conducts research and programming at the James H. Barrow Field Station.
The Garfield Institute for Public Leadership launched a study to gauge the mood of young voters leading up to the 2012 presidential election. Scholar-in-residence Jason Johnson has provided commentary on the study on national media.
The Lindsay-Crane Center for Writing and Literature hosts a Visiting Authors Series each year. In 2012, Thrity Umrigar, author of "The Space Between Us" gave a convocation and book signing on campus.
