Lake County Welcomes Marymount College
On October 30, 2012, Marymount College received a warm welcome from community members, business owners and officials as the County and the College celebrated the signing of the lease to establish a rural campus at the County-owned Lucerne Hotel facility – forging a public-private partnership that could become a model for rural education.
Marymount plans to open the new campus in the fall of 2013 initially offering professional development and community educational programs and then expanding to offer four-year degree completion programs in the fall of 2014, pending approval by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
Marymount College President Michael Brophy and Lake County Board of Supervisors Chairman Rob Brown announced on October 23rd, the completion of a lease agreement between the college and the County of Lake for the use of the historic Lucerne Hotel as a college campus. The lease’s approval opens the door for educational opportunities for the residents of Lake County and provides the college the opportunity for expansion into an idyllic rural community.
Beginning fall 2014, the college plans to offer a four-year degree completion program to Lake County transfer students, pending the approval of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Current Marymount students will be able to participate in research, internships and service learning in 2013. The College is also considering professional and community educational programs for development and implementation beginning 2013-2014.
President Brophy and the college’s board of trustees approved the agreement at their October 13, 2012, board meeting in Rancho Palos Verdes, where the college’s main campus is located. The college also operates a campus in San Pedro’s waterfront district in Los Angeles County. With the establishment of a college in Lake County, Marymount students may move between campuses and attend classes, participate in service learning, complete internships and do research in both urban and rural settings. read entire article
