It is the policy of the Board of Trustees at Washtenaw Community College to offer post-secondary educational programs and services in Livingston County in partnership with local school districts or other agencies.
The significant outcomes of this policy will be: (1) the provision of community college services to the Livingston County residents with a focus on the Brighton, Hartland, and Pinckney areas, (2) the building of relationships with the school districts, businesses, and agencies in the Brighton, Hartland, and Pinckney areas, (3) the building of county-wide collegiate services in cooperation with Cleary College, Lansing Community College, and the Livingston County school districts, (4) the attraction of students from Livingston County to continue their education on the WCC main campus, (5) keeping WCC in a competitive situation with regard to community college services to Livingston County citizens in comparison to other colleges, and (6) financing of direct services in Livingston County on a pay-as-you-go basis so that there is no cost to the taxpayers of Washtenaw County.
The Livingston County program is guided by these principles:
- WCC charges Livingston County students out-of-district tuition and fees as determined by the WCC Board of Trustees.
- The school districts provide appropriate classroom facilities and equipment for WCC programs and activities.
- The school districts participate, wherever feasible, with WCC in planning strategic and programmatic directions.
