Lewis-Clark State College
500 8th Avenue
Lewiston, ID 83501
New Home for the Business Division
The college keeps growing and the Business
Division is no exception. Lewis-Clark State College grew by 12% over
the past two years, setting a new school enrollment record of 4,542
students. The Business Division realized over 700 majors and has
more than doubled in student enrollment in just the past eight
years. In fact, during the same time period, the Division has
increased the number of student credit hours taught by 174%. This
growth is primarily due to the outstanding faculty and staff at LCSC
and their student-centered approach to everything they do.
The Business Division is also a leader in online business education
producing more online business classes than any other Idaho
four-year college or university. Lewis-Clark State College’s recent
regional accreditation visit by Northwest Commission on Colleges and
Universities (NWCCU) recognized the Business Division for having
dedicated faculty who embrace distance learning. They also singled
out our online Management degree as an example of a program that
serves our region well. The NWCCU praised the entire college and
lauded LCSC for its visionary and dynamic leadership, along with a
faculty and staff who genuinely care about students and student
With the large increase in enrollment in its
programs, to say simply that “the Business Division needs a new
home” dramatically understates the case.
Unlike programs of
comparable size (Education and Nursing), the Business Division has
no dedicated classroom space on campus. Projected estimates indicate
continued and rapid growth for the next several years.
Idaho Permanent Building Fund supports this $1.9 million dollar
renovation with funding in the amount of $1.7 million dollars. The
balance of the funding will come from private support.
