The Lake Land College community is saddened to learn of the announced closure of the Mattoon LSC Communications Plant. According to a recent announcement by LSC Communications, this facility will cease operations by July 2020.

Dr. Josh Bullock, Lake Land College President, said, “As the full impact of this announcement is realized throughout the region, Lake Land College stands ready to assist our fellow community members who will be affected by this unfortunate news. The college offers a variety of educational and training opportunities and will work closely with impacted individuals to create a transition plan for their future career path. Lake Land will utilize its vast resources and partnerships to assist members of our local community during this difficult time.”

Lake Land College has begun collaborating with area partners including Coles Together, the cities of Mattoon and Charleston, the local Workforce Investment and Opportunity Act (WIOA), and the Mattoon and Charleston Chambers of Commerce to serve the individuals and families impacted by the closure. Lake Land College also administers the dislocated worker services program through WIOA. These services can provide funding and support for impacted workers to attend a variety of training programs at Lake Land College.

“To the LSC Communications employees, we want you to know we have successfully assisted community members who have experienced similar workforce transitions and we are here for you,” said Dr. Bullock.
