Lane Community College Joins Capstone’s HCMC International Academic Center


Lane Community College (LCC) , a comprehensive community college located in Eugene, Oregon, is the first US community college to join Capstone Vietnam’s International Academic Center (IAC) in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC). 

The IAC is a shared facility that serves as a home base from which U.S. and other foreign institutions of higher education can promote their programs and services in Vietnam, and even regionally.  The center, which offers a modern and collegial work environment for school representatives to do their work, is supported by Capstone staff, and includes a reception area and conference room for meetings and presentations. 

The IAC gives LCC and other institutional members, including Kansas State University, the first IAC member in Hanoi, a meaningful long-term presence in Vietnam.  Some of the advantages include free advising services for students and parents and the chance to explore other opportunities, in addition to student recruitment. 

LCC, which is a member of the prestigious League for Innovation (to which some of America’s top community colleges belong), offers a wide variety of instructional programs, including transfer credit programs, career and technical degree and certificate programs, continuing education noncredit courses, programs in English as a Second Language and International ESL, GED programs, and customized training for local businesses.  More than 36,000 students take credit or noncredit classes at Lane each year.  LCC has the third largest enrollment of the 17 community colleges in Oregon

Lane  offers 2+2 transfer programs to the University of Oregon and all of the Oregon public universities in fields such as Business, Engineering, Computer Science, Art, Journalism, International Studies, Finance, and Education.  Lane students who want to experience other states often transfer to: University of California-Davis, Montana State University-Bozeman, University of Washington, University of Wisconsin, University of Texas, among many others. 

Lane also offers nationally-recognized career programs in Aviation, Sustainability, Culinary Arts, and Hospitality, an honors program for high-performing students and the second-largest community college internship program in the USA, allowing students the opportunity to graduate from top transfer partners with work experience on their resumes.

Capstone Vietnam is currently recruiting for the position of LCC Regional Outreach Coordinator.  The position is for a Vietnamese national and the application deadline is 5 October 2012.  To learn more, take a look at this recruitment information.

  1. I’m from Oregon and went to school down the street from LCC (UO). I’m so happy to hear the school is making such important connections in Vietnam. Both places are dear to my heart!
