A Message from the President
Dr. Charles R. Mojock
Welcome to Lake-Sumter State College. We have changed our name in recognition of the initiation of classes for our first bachelor’s degree program in January 2013. Last year was a most eventful one for the college, not only due to the name change but also due to the celebration of our 50th Anniversary of service to the people of Lake and Sumter counties. Our College was established in 1962 thanks to the dedicated efforts of a group of concerned local citizens who believed that is was essential to have higher education opportunities right here “close to home.” We continue to be thankful for the strong and generous support of our community.
Today, LSSC is a very different institution, having grown rapidly in enrollment while adding many new facilities and two branch campuses over the years. But the college has stayed true to its promise of providing access to quality higher education by focusing on student success one student at a time. Our college has been recognized for its efforts by the Aspen Institute: selected for the second year in a row as being in the Top Ten Percent of all community colleges in the nation. Our commitment to technology for teaching and learning led to our ranking as #5 in the country for colleges our size by the Center for Digital Education.
Whether you are a prospective student, parent, or interested community member, we want you to know that LSSC is a place “Where Futures Soar” because we understand how important a good education is in enabling you to be competitive in the global economy. Your decision to invest in yourself by furthering your education is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. Our dedicated and talented faculty and staff offer you small classes with top quality instructors and excellent student and academic support services. We also provide up to date technology and equipment, fully on-line classes, comfortable facilities and attractive grounds.
Again, welcome to Lake-Sumter State College. And we look forward to helping you soar!
Charles R. Mojock, Ed. D.
