Lamar Community College is excited to announce the return of the FullBridge Program on July 18-29. 

The Fullbridge Program, funded by the Colorado Community College System (CCCS), was designed to help participants succeed in the modern workplace.  Fullbridge works with universities, governments, and organizations to fully engage students and professionals in the essentials of business, communication, and collaboration. 

The program is an experience instead of a traditional class, which employs an immersive, integrated system of learning filled with real-world content and practical applications.  Participants in the program work 8:00am to 5:00pm every day during the fast-paced 10-day course and they don't simply sit through lectures; they work together to tackle real-world projects in an environment that mirrors a rigorous workday in the real-world work environment.

Part of the program is devoted to a professional development experience created in partnership with Tim Butler, Director of Career Development Programs at Harvard Business School, which is designed to help participants identify their passions and strengths, envision their future career, and develop a plan to make that vision a reality.

"This program is designed for business professionals currently working in the industry as well as students pursuing a business degree and entrepreneurs," noted Cheryl Sanchez, Vice President of Academic/Student Services.  "Everyone in the course will experience a real-world learning environment while developing skills through practical application."

LCC first hosted the program in August 2015. 

"As a coach in the program last year, I saw students transformed from having an interest in business to developing a strong understanding and appreciation of business in the 21st Century," continued Sanchez.  "By the end of the course students were amazed at the data analysis and presentation skills they had developed."
