Institutional Advancement

Supporting the Future of LBCC

The mission of Institutional Advancement is to support Linn-Benton Community College by sharing our college's impact and creating pathways for advocacy. We do this so that more people in our community will have the opportunity to succeed! Our department houses three branches: The LBCC Foundation, government relations and marketing / strategic communications.
