President of LCCC Dr. Joe Schaffer spoke at the monthly luncheon for the Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce today. The theme of his presentation was "Building Forward."
He says that over the past decade the college has experienced more than a 40 percent increase in enrollment.
However, the educational space has not kept pace with that growth. Schaffer says as it stands right now the school needs an additional forty thousand square feet just to meet the needs of current students.
And with enrollment expected to increase over the next ten years planners realize the critical need for expansion of academic and support spaces.
