Hertel, WI

The LCOOCC St. Croix Outreach Site is located in the Youth Center on the St. Croix Chippewa Reservation in Hertel, Wisconsin. The Outreach site is centrally located to serve the St. Croix Sand Lake, Gaslyn, Round Lake, Maple Plain and Danbury Communities.

The St. Croix Outreach site offers five Associate degree programs in Small Business Management, Native American Studies, Liberal Arts, Medical Office Mid-Management, and Casino Operations Management, and a one year Certificate program in Renewable Energy. The St. Croix Outreach Site is located less than an hour from the main campus in Hayward, enabling many students to begin their general education studies at the St. Croix Outreach site and then transfer to Hayward to complete their degree programs in a diversity of disciplines. Through ITV technology, St. Croix campus students can take introductory and advanced classes in an array of degree program offerings.

The Site boasts a 10-station computer lab with projection and ITV technology, enabling classroom broadcasts among the four outreach sites and the main campus. With the recent addition of a new ITV classroom, the St. Croix Outreach Site is now considered, along with the main campus, a “Teaching “site for ITV classes.

The St. Croix Outreach Site is dedicated to providing Community based programs to all members of the St. Croix community. TrANS (Transportation Alliance for New Solutions) program testing and support, traditional Native American Beading, ANA Language Grant classes, and 4 year degree cohort support after graduation, are among the programs offered through LCOOCC Extension and Work-based Learning programs.
