Welcome to Human Resources

Lakeland Community College began in 1967 and was the first college in Ohio to be established by a popular vote of the people. The College's very beginnings were the result of the hard work, dedication and persistence of a group of individuals committed to their vision of higher learning for people in Northeast Ohio. As the vision of service continues, we seek motivated individuals who want to impact lives through learning.

More than 1,000 full and part-time employees contribute to Lakeland's success. A 'students first' culture, an attractive and well-maintained campus, and an atmosphere of shared governance and collegiality, coupled with competitive wages and benefits, are some of the reasons these individuals share their talents by working at the college.

Lakeland Community College is an equal access and equal opportunity employer. We have a strong commitment to the principle of diversity and, in that spirit, seek a broad spectrum of candidates. If you wish to learn about current vacancies at the college, please click on 'Positions Available' on the right-hand side of this page.
