Lake Superior College embraces all students, strives to become ever more inclusive, and increase the diversity of our campus community. The College maintains planning to accomplish these important goals.

An increase in international students and students of color factor into the overall increase in enrollment. The overall number of self-identified students of color (non-white) has also increased 13.54 percent, from 672 last fall to 763 this fall. This is the result of ongoing efforts through LSC’s Intercultural Center, admissions, marketing and LSC Foundation, as well as aggressive community outreach efforts. Additional scholarships have also been made available to students of color, first generation students, and lower-income students.
