Lewis-Clark State College has seen its total student enrollment rise 68 percent since 2000, interim President Tony Fernandez told JFAC this morning. “We think that our enrollment increases in the last few years show that we continue to be a successful higher-education enterprise for the state of Idaho,” he said. Fall 2010 enrollment, in total headcount, was 4,542 students. “Just about every category, we have increased,” Fernandez said. Plus, the college got top marks in its latest accreditation review and has won several major awards. Placement rates are over 90 percent, he said, meaning students have either been admitted to higher education programs in their field after graduation or have secured jobs.
