The LCOOCC Lac du Flambeau Outreach Site is located in the Lac du Flambeau grade school on the Lac du Flambeau Chippewa Reservation in Lac du Flambeau, Wisconsin. Students attending classes at this site come from as far away as Crandon and the Lac Vieux Desert Chippewa Reservation. We are convenient to Lac du Flambeau, Minocqua, Woodruff, Mercer and other surrounding communities.

The Lac du Flambeau Outreach Site offers two Associate degree programs in Native American Studies and Liberal Arts. The Lac du Flambeau Outreach Site is located approximately two hours from the main campus in Hayward. A number of students have elected to begin their general education studies at Lac du Flambeau and will transfer to Hayward to complete their degree programs in a diversity of disciplines. This process allows students to stay at home for at least their first year of college. Through ITV technology and online courses, Lac du Flambeau students can take introductory classes in an array of degree program offerings before declaring a major course of study.

Classes are small at the Lac du Flambeau site and instructors strive to foster collaborative learning environments in the classroom. For these reasons, students tend to become very close and become a system of support for each other as they work on their degrees. Most instructors live in the community. Some are tribal members. In addition, whenever possible, instructors draw on the strengths and knowledge of elders and other community members to meet the unique needs of the student body and course curriculum.

The Lac du Flambeau grade school has a 16-station computer lab with projection, which is open to students late afternoons and evenings. A handful of computers are available to students to use during the day. ITV technology enables classroom broadcasts between the four outreach sites and the main campus.
