Pathway to Empowerment (P2E) prepares students for immediate employability and what it means to live meaningfully in the real world.
The Pathway to Empowerment (P2E) signature program takes students on a journey of transformation that leads to a life of personal significance and professional success. This program is designed to empower our students to reach their full potential at Lake Erie College and beyond.

Why is P2E essential to a student's college experience?
Each year, LEC students will add experiences and reflections to an e-portfolio. By the time students reach their senior year, they will be prepared for the rigors of the job hunt, skilled at the interview process, and have a deeper understanding of both personal and professional goals and how to achieve them.
