President's Welcome

We are here to empower every student to reach his or her goal.

President Lorenson

Welcome to Gogebic Community College!
I am always amazed by the number of people across our Great Lakes Region who comment to me on the positive impact that Gogebic Community College has had on their lives or that of someone close. GCC has been part of the region’s educational environment since 1932 and has touched the lives of thousands of our friends and neighbors. Throughout this time, the College has dedicated itself to empowering every student to reach his or her goal. Every day our dedicated staff helps students reach their potential and prepare them for success at a college or university, in the workplace, and in life. They make better futures happen!

Our important work continues. Gogebic Community College continues to be a leader in student outcomes. Our graduation and retention rates are the envy of our peers. Our graduates give us positive student satisfaction and goal attainment scores near 100%. In comparison, our transfer students most often do as well or better at their transfer institution than those institutions’ regular students. Those students entering the workplace tell us the skills they learned prepared them well for their careers. Gogebic has earned a reputation for providing an outstanding education while being accessible.

Gogebic Community College remains a vital source for training programs, providing opportunities for students to earn certificates and associate degrees as well as providing students pursuing an advanced higher education a strong foundation for their future studies.

Whether at the Ironwood Campus, the Copper Country Extension Center, or online, the staff at Gogebic Community College look forward to working with you—to empower you to reach your goal. You, the student, are the most important person in education!

Go BOLD! Go Gogebic!
