LBCC Celebrates 50th Anniversary at Deluxe Brewery Friday, Sept. 29
The Foundation is putting on celebration for LBCC’s 50th Anniversary starting at 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 29 at Deluxe Brewery in Albany. Open to staff, alumni, family and friends, the event will feature a no-host bar and food truck, entertainment, Roadrunner IPA and more! Performances by Business faculty member Ian Priestman (and others) and Advancement Marketing Manager Joe Sherlock start at 4 p.m., with facilities staff Judd Everts DJ'ing the event. Also featured will be a special brew by Deluxe called “Roadrunner Red IPA,” racking-up at seven percent alcohol by volume and 100-IBUs. “It's all about inspiration and balance with the Roadrunner Red IPA," said Jamie Howard, Deluxe co-founder in a recent DH article. Roadrunner Red features a new Oregon-grown “Strata” hop, known for its tropical-citrus, hop-forward flavors which balances nicely with the caramel, malty body of a traditional Red IPA. The first 50 people receive a free “50th Anniversary” growler to fill! Additional growlers will be available for purchase. 

Extended Learning Opens in Willamette Hall, iLearn & Healthcare Careers Move
The newly-formed Extended Learning Department, under the Academic Foundations Division, has moved into Willamette Hall 120, directly across from the Campus Store (aka bookstore). Extended Learning department includes the programs of Community Education, Small Business Development Center, Corporate Training, Professional Development and The Fire Training Council. In addition, Accelerated Short-term Training, also part of Academic Foundations, is located in the same shared space. LB iLearn Online program has moved to the second floor of the Calapooia Center, room 212, and the Healthcare Careers program admissions and advising staff have moved to Takena Hall, room 220.

Albany Campus Remodel Projects 
With approval of additional state funding for Albany Campus projects, the college is continuing to develop plans for renovation of student areas on campus, including a remodel of Takena Hall. One change in the works is to allow students to make payments in Takena Hall, rather than having to trek across campus to the Business Office. Danny Aynes and Jess Jacobs are working on the requirements needed for that service, which will allow students to register and pay for their classes in one location. Construction is scheduled to start in the summer of 2019.

New “Makerspace” Being Planned in Lebanon
The LBCC Advancement Office and the Extended Learning department are spearheading an effort to create a local "Makerspace" in an LBCC-owned building in downtown Lebanon. This community-driven learning, design and fabrication hub will provide a location for people to explore and collaborate on projects and ideas. The space will be designed to encourage discovery and innovation through shared tools, resources, and knowledge. The City of Lebanon, the Lebanon Chamber of Commerce, the Small Business Development Center, and other local partners are in support of the idea. LBCC Community Education plans to offer classes in the space, and participants in the JOBS program plan to run a bike repair shop and help with staffing the facility.

LB iLearn Online Joins Academic Foundations, Adds Programs
LB iLearn Online has made some big changes over the summer. Not only do they now have nine programs, the newest being a Retail Management Certificate, but they also have two new professional development courses in radiology available for continued education credits. In addition, the program moved into a new space in the Calapooia Center, room CC-212, and in June, they launched a new website:, built by their team over several months. The revamped site gives a fresh face to the program as they continue to integrate into LBCC. In August, iLearn joined the Academic Foundation/Extended Learning team under Jason Kovak. However, they will continue to work under Stacy Mallory, faculty chair of LB iLearn. Drop by and visit them anytime.
