Corporate Services

The Center’s Department of Corporate Services provides workforce development assistance and customized training for corporate clients throughout the college’s service area. Through this department, a highly talented team of staff faculty, external consultants and industry advisors have been brought together to leverage their expertise and resources in order to advance the region’s most important asset, its human capital. To serve the region’s highest demand occupations, the Center has cultivated strong partnerships with companies specializing in the petrochemical, maritime and healthcare industries; however, the Center also serves the retail, finance, warehouse/ distribution and hospitality sectors, as well as works to meet the professional development needs of those working within school districts and non-profit organizations.

Workforce/Industrial Training

The Center’s non-credit classes are designed to fulfill specific workforce training needs for individuals interested in developing a skill to be prepared for the high-demand, high-skill and high-paying jobs of today. These classes provide training for a career, including preparation for industry certification where appropriate. Students will master a workforce skill without taking entrance exams or enrolling in college credit courses. Programs vary in length and are offered in a non-traditional format with daytime, evening and weekend options. Programs offered are based on our local industries’ immediate need and therefore may vary from semester to semester.

FOUNDATION™ Certified Training Program

Lee College is home to one of eight FOUNDATION™ Certified Training Programs (FCTP) worldwide. FCTP means that your fieldbus training is taught at a Certified Training Site, by a Certified Instructor, using Certified Curriculum. Through the FCTP program training sites, curriculum, and instructors are all audited to ensure they meet program requirements. Certified training centers are required to maintain multiple FOUNDATION fieldbus hosts and devices onsite in order to demonstrate competence with fieldbus technology. They must also demonstrate to auditors that their course material adheres to set instructional standards.

FCTP ensures that you are working with someone possessing a strong knowledge of Foundation technology principles, a consistent understanding of fieldbus fundamentals and a proven ability to implement fieldbus-based control systems. Beginning automation students are able to identify colleges, universities and other facilities offering a certified Foundation educational curriculum. After graduating, they will be able to present official FCTP certificates to potential employers. Existing automation professionals completing certified courses can expand their job skills and employment value within their companies.

Fire Science

Fire Science is an increasingly complex profession that is called upon to deliver a myriad of diverse services. Individuals must receive quality training and meet required state standards in order to improve community safety, preparedness, and job performance. Our program helps students acquire the knowledge, skills, and abilities to provide workplace competencies, and safely perform the critical and essential duties assigned.

The City of Baytown Fire Department has partnered with Lee College Community Education to utilize the Baytown Fire Training Facility to offer high-quality emergency response training, instruction to firefighters, and emergency response and safety personnel in fire prevention, suppression, control, and safety.

Through Community Education students will get the educational framework needed to begin a career or move ahead in the challenging career of fire services. As a certified training facility through the Texas Commission on Fire Protection (TCFP) we provide training designed to prepare individuals seeking to advance and become certified. Our program offers low-cost, convenient, online/hybrid courses. All training meets the TCFP standards, qualifications, and curriculum.

Healthcare Training

Paraprofessionals in the healthcare industry assist doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and other medical professionals in providing patient care and related services in settings such as hospitals, pharmacies, medical labs, health clinics, schools, physician’s offices, nursing care facilities, and patient homes. They serve an important role in the healthcare field as they often work directly with patients, but may also assist with administrative duties and record keeping. They help patients feel well-cared for and perform routine tasks such as drawing blood, bathing patients, filling prescriptions, measuring and recording temperatures, blood pressure, and other vital signs. Typically, students enrolled in these courses complete their training within only a few months and can increase their employability by obtaining a certification in their field of study. Some graduates choose to go straight into the workforce, while others continue on in pursuit of a degree in nursing or an allied health field, such as dental hygiene.

We currently offer the following courses, several of which have an online option.

  • Certified Nurse Aide
  • Clinical Medical Assistant
  • Dental Assisting
  • Dialysis Technician
  • EKG Technician
  • Medical Administrative Assistant
  • Pharmacy Technician
  • Phlebotomy Technician
  • Veterinary Assistant

Logistics, Warehouse, and Distributions

The Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) Certified Logistics Associate-Certified Logistics Technician (CLA/CLT) covers core competency areas defined by MSSC’s skills standards for higher skilled, frontline material handling workers in factories, warehouses, distribution centers and transporters. The CLA is a prerequisite for CLT. Individuals are assessed for two credentials and students who achieve both certifications may be eligible to apply for 3 hours of college credit toward the Associate of Applied Degree in Logistics.

Each course delivered through the program corresponds to a major competency area. The MSSC CLA/CLT Training Program consists of two online MSSC courses, with classroom facilitation by an MSSC Certified Instructor. Successful completion of the CLA/CLT Training Program will be as indicated by documentation that the participant passed the MSSC Certified Logistics Associate Online Assessment and the MSSC Certified Logistics Technician Online Assessment.

NCCER Core Training

The National Craft Assessment and Certification Program (NCACP) Core Curriculum, presented as the Introduction to Industrial Crafts & Trades, is a prerequisite to all other Level 1 craft curriculum. Its modules cover topics such as Basic Safety, Communication Skills, and Introduction to Construction Drawings.

Completing this curriculum gives the trainee the basic skills needed to continue education in any craft area he or she chooses. NCCER offers a complete series of entry- and journey-level written assessments as part of its National Craft Assessment and Certification Program (NCACP).

These assessments evaluate the knowledge of an individual in a specific craft area. All assessments are based upon the NCCER Curriculum and have been developed in conjunction with industry Subject Matter Experts.

Community Education

Lee College offers more than 500 courses designed to provide non-credit learning opportunities for the public and community. Classes are intended to address the changing needs of the community whether vocational or recreational and may be as short as one session or may continue for a full semester. Courses begin throughout the year and are conducted at a variety of times and locations. Although a few programs have eligibility requirements, Community Education offerings are open to most interested adults regardless of educational background or eligibility for admission to college credit programs. While courses do not apply toward a degree, community education units (CEUs) are available for most workforce courses.

Continuous registration is available weekdays in the Center for Workforce and Community Development. Because these programs are self-supporting, course costs are dependent upon materials and instructor fees.

The building features the Lisa H. Urban Grand Foyer, the Melva Johnson Black Box Theatre, a 700-seat main theatre with proscenium stage, and various practice and performance halls.

About Lee College

In 1931, the Board of Trustees of the Goose Creek Independent School District identified the need to establish a junior college dedicated to providing educational opportunities to students who could otherwise not afford it. In 1934, they established the Lee Junior College of Goose Creek, Texas.

One hundred seventy-seven students enrolled in the inaugural session. By 1935, enrollment increased 33 percent, bringing the total student population to 236. That same year, the college held its first commencement exercises. Four women, Juanita Barrington (Mrs. David Holm), Byrtis Avey (Mrs. Elmer Brinkley), La Del Payne (Mrs. Barney Hillard), and Hudnall Spence (Mrs. Robert Southwick) received diplomas.

Recognizing the need for both, a strong academic curriculum and a comprehensive technical/vocational curriculum, the founders of the college established the Robert E. Lee Vocational Institute, Vocational Division of Lee Junior College. No college credit was given for work in the institute until 1941 and it did not become an integral part of the college until 1945, following a two-year period when no technical/vocational courses were offered.

By the mid-1940s, the administration and faculty of the college had become increasingly aware that the college needed its own governing board. In 1945, Walter Rundell, one of the original faculty members, became Dean of Lee College. Dean Rundell became the guiding force behind major developments for the two decades which followed.

In 1948, the college’s name was changed to Lee College. That same year, Lee College gained accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The Association urged Lee College to develop a campus facility separate from the high school.

A successful bond election in 1949 led to the completion of the first two buildings - the Administration Building and the Gymnasium. The college moved to the new campus in 1951. Following the move to a separate campus, the growth of the college exceeded the expectations of its leaders and plans for additional buildings were accelerated. A Liberal Arts Building (now John Britt Hall) was added in 1958. By 1961, the campus had doubled in size. The Library was completed and the Gymnasium expanded in 1962. Construction of Moler Hall, Technical Vocational Building One, and Bonner Hall soon followed.

Under the leadership of Dean Rundell, Lee College successfully separated from the local public school district in 1965. On August 18, 1965, Lee College’s first Board of Regents, appointed by the public school board, and assumed governance of the College.

In 1966, the College, under the leadership of Dean Rundell and George Beto and in cooperation with the Texas Department of Corrections, began a program of courses in the state’s prison system. This program has grown from an initial enrollment of 182 students to a current enrollment of more than 1,000 students.

In 1966, Dr. Richard Strahan became the first full-time president of Lee College. Since the separation from the local public school district, the college has had nine presidents:

Dr. Strahan 1966 -1971
Dr. Raymond Cleveland 1971 - 1973
Dr. Jim Sturgeon 1973 - 1976
Dr. Robert Cloud 1976 - 1986
Dr. Vivian B. Blevins 1986 - 1991
Dr. Jackson N. Sasser 1992 - 2001
Dr. Martha M. Ellis 2002 - 2008
Dr. Michael Murphy 2009 - 2012
Dr. Dennis Brown 2012 - present

The Lee College Foundation was established in 1968. A non- profit dedicated to providing scholarship to deserving Lee College students, the Foundation has a current portfolio balance of more than $6.5 million and awards more than 200 scholarship each year. In 1969, Lee College, in cooperation with two Liberty County School districts, began offering courses in Liberty and Dayton.

In 1972, course offerings were expanded to include community education courses, as well as the senior adults program. These community-oriented, short-term courses have experienced a dramatic growth in popularity and are further evidence of the flexibility of the community college concept.

In 1986, Lee College partnered with San Jacinto Mall to offer programs and services to constituents outside the College’s service area. That same year, the Friends of Lee College, a group of volunteers dedicated to funding and supporting college educational programs, was also established. Under the leadership of John B. Tucker, this group raised more than $2 million to support programs and facilities improvements.

A focus on local economic development leads to the establishment of the Small Business Development Center in 1987. Additionally that year, Lee College began instituting new industrial programs and revising existing curriculums in an effort to respond to the needs of local industries.

In 1987 the college instituted an agreement with the University Of Texas School Of Nursing in Galveston, enabling registered nurses the opportunity to pursue a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing.

A successful bond election in 1988 enabled the college to initiate a construction program featuring a new science building, a lecture hall, and major renovations to several campus facilities.

The 711 West Texas property, acquired in 1990, was renovated to house a performing and fine arts complex in addition to an allied health suite named the McNulty-Haddick Complex, in honor of Alma Haddick and her husband Luther.

In February 2000, local voters passed a $20 million bond election to build a new advanced technology center/library, a completely renovated gymnasium and newly constructed sports/wellness complex. Other renovations and additional parking were also included.

Today, more than 13,000 Lee College students are enrolled in academic, technical education and non-credit continuing education programs each semester. Basic education is available for those seeking to improve skills in reading, writing, mathematics, and language, in addition to a nationally-acclaimed honors curriculum.
