You may notice this catalog seems lighter than the last one. That is because it is focused on the personal enrichment courses and workshops we offer that can help you and your family stay healthy, have fun, and try new hobbies or lifestyle experiences. These types of courses include something for everyone, regardless of age, without the pressure of tests, homework or written reports. Don’t worry – we have not dropped the corporate business courses. Here at Corporate & Community Learning, we still have a complete curriculum of business education and training to increase office skills and effectiveness, enhance supervisory or management techniques, or help employees be safer on the job. Now, however, they are in a separate catalog mailed to companies and firms in our district. And, if you would also like to see them, you can find an online, searchable version at the bottom of our Web page at www.lc.edu/ccl. Click on the catalog view that is titled, “Corporate Learning.” We hope that by offering two separate catalogs, we can help each of you more quickly and easily find exactly what you are looking for. Your thoughts about this are very welcome and we look forward to reading your comments on Facebook!
