Lorain County Community College is a community college located in the city of Elyria in Lorain County, Ohio, United States, which is part of the Greater Cleveland region. Its motto is "Real education for a real future." It was visited by U.S. President Barack Obama in January 2010 and April 2012.

LCCC's Division of Arts and Humanities is home to several distinguished scholars and artists, notably 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry finalist and 2006 Lannan Literary Award-winning poet and memoirist Bruce Weigl and composer Jeffrey Mumford, 2013 composer-in-residence at the National Gallery of Art. Marilyn Valentino, professor emeritus of English, served as national chair of the Conference on College Composition and Communication in 2010.

LCCC was the first community college to exhibit a fabrication lab, the "Fab Lab", on its campus. As a Massachusetts Institute of Technology project in 2005, it was the second public facility in the country with the equipment. This cutting edge technology allows students and the community first hand experience with a very technical and economical skill.[1][2]
