Pittsburgh, PA -- This spring, La Roche College became the only four-year institution of higher learning in the region to offer degree completion programs at the Lawrence County Learning Center, located in New Castle.

“We’re excited about this newly formed partnership,” said Lance Shaeffer, assistant dean for academic affairs at La Roche College and coordinator of the College’s programs at the center. “We believe our offerings will give working adults in the greater New Castle area even more options to further their education.”

One of La Roche’s programs at the center is LEAD (Leadership and Administrative Development), a degree completion track for students interested in a career in business or management. Students with previous college credits can complete their bachelor’s degree in as little as 18 months and will study in cohorts with people of similar professional backgrounds.

“Working adults are juggling quite a bit,” said Shaeffer. “Many of them have fulltime jobs and families. With this new venture, our programs not only become more accessible, but they’ll be offered at times that are convenient for busy professionals.”

La Roche will conduct an open house for prospective students on Wednesday, June 29 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Lawrence County Learning Center, located at 131 Columbus Inner Belt in New Castle. For more information on La Roche’s programs at the center, call the Office of Admissions for Graduate and Continuing Education at 412-536-1262 or e-mail
