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.

However, if your interest in a position is contingent upon information not available in the posting, we request that you submit your question via email.

Criminal History Background Check
If you are a finalist for any position with the College, you will be subject to a criminal history background check based on fingerprints taken by our Campus Police Department and submitted to the appropriate law enforcement agencies. A conviction record may not prevent an individual from being employed by the College. Factors such as the individual's age at the time of the crime, the seriousness of the crime, and the nature of the crime in relation to the position are taken into consideration.
