Recognizing the growing complexity of commerce and industry as well as the continued expansion of technology in today's world, Lackawanna College determined that it could play a greater role in serving the business community and the residents of Northeastern Pennsylvania outside Scranton and its immediate vicinity. Research showed that many young people and working adults in these regions are eager to expand their education, enhance existing skills and explore various career options at a nearby, quality educational institution.
To address this situation, Lackawanna College has created a network of satellite centers. These facilities are designed to assist academically everyone from the high school student or graduate through the unemployed, underemployed or displaced adult worker to the person ready to return to the workforce after years of absence.
Located in Hazleton, Lake Region, Sunbury, Towanda and New Milford, the Lackawanna College satellites help an individual identify a career that reflects his or her abilities and then develop an appropriate path toward attaining that goal through education and training. Lackawanna College offers a wide range of courses at the satellite centers so that the individual can pursue many options. All satellite center courses are comparable with those taught at the main campus and earn equal credit.
