Community, Attitude, Respect, Environment, and Student Success—the first letters of these words spell CARES. At Lakeshore Technical College in Cleveland, Wisconsin, President Michael Lanser embraces these values, and it shows in the quality of LTC’s sixty associate’s degree programs. Almost three thousand students here gain hands-on experience in such fields as dairy herd management, computer-aided drafting, radiography and web design, or participate in any of ten professional apprenticeship programs. LTC also provides career advising services for those unsure of their best path, and a large percentage of incoming freshmen receive some form of financial aid. And of course, there’s more to do here than just study; social opportunities on-campus include a popular disc golf course and several professional and spiritual clubs. Monthly lunch events even provide the opportunity for students to give feedback directly to President Lanser himself! Where else will you find all these personal touches, and a better path to a strong future?
