EIU and Lake Land College officials to meet to discuss collaborations

Posted:
MATTOON - Eastern Illinois University's Board of Trustees will meet with Lake Land College's Board of Trustees on Thursday to discuss current and future collaborations between the two.

According to EIU President Bill Perry, both him and Lake Land President Josh Bullock agreed that the meeting is a good idea.  Officials say trustees will discuss several ideas that EIU and LLC will be able to work on together.

This idea is becoming more common, as community colleges and public universities across the nation are working together in the effort to help their students.  One such collaboration between the two entities helps students obtain less expensive four-year degrees by taking community college classes.
