It all started with a bold idea: create a higher education institution whose mission is to provide affordable and accessible education for all who desire to learn regardless of wealth, heritage, or previous academic experience. The idea for a publicly funded, broad-based higher education institution actually began in the early 1900s and took many years for the idea to really take foothold and become a wide spread reality. In the early '60s, legislators started drafting bills to establish the nation's first community college system. Governor William Scranton signed into law the Community College Act of 1963 creating Pennsylvania's community college system. Local communities petitioned the Pennsylvania State Board of Education to sponsor and establish community colleges in the Commonwealth.

Each college needed a local sponsor, which may be a city, county, individual school district or consortium of these entities. Luzerne County Community College became a reality on December 15, 1965 when the Luzerne County Commissioners adopted a resolution agreeing to act as sponsor of a two year-college.

The commissioners appointed the County Board of School Directors to survey the needs of high school students and local employers. By September 15, 1966, the Pennsylvania Board of Education, on information presented by the commissioners, approved the plan for the college.

And so Luzerne County Community College formally began operations on October 2, 1967. The first class of 836 students attended classes in two buildings in downtown Wilkes-Barre located near the Hotel Sterling. The college offered 11 programs at the time.

Today, the college boasts more than 32,000 degree-bearing alumni. LCCC currently offers 82 occupational programs (includes degree, certificate, and diploma programs), 24 liberal arts/transfer programs and 10 credit-free career training programs as well as hundreds of conferences, seminars, workshops, and business/industry customized training.

Luzerne County Community College is the largest college in northeastern Pennsylvania and continues to expand and adapt to the educational needs of the residents and business and industry in the Wyoming Valley. The staff and faculty of LCCC will always continue their dedication to the students and alumni of northeastern Pennsylvania as we have over the past 50 years.
