We are LEC

Founded in 1856, Lake Erie College has long valued an individualized education.

We emphasize a breadth of academic and co-curricular experiences that provide our students with skills that will never become irrelevant. These include creative and entrepreneurial thinking, problem-solving from a variety of perspectives, and strong communication skills.

These powerful attributes, woven into our degree programs, are valuable and applicable to any profession or career. At LEC, students have unique access to real-world opportunities, including internships and collaborating with an exciting academic community.

Our focus on educating the “whole” student provides a platform of success that caters to the needs of an increasingly complex and unpredictable society.

Our core values as an institution are guided by the four pillars of our vision:

  • Self-discovery

  • The development of strong personal attributes

  • Creative problem-solving

  • The balance of personal and professional goals with the needs of others.

We live and breathe these values by working side-by-side with our students to help them achieve their goals.
