On June 9, 2015, the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians (“Pokagon Band”) announced that it has partnered with Lake Michigan College in an initiative to develop educational cohort programs. The Pokagon Band will make five annual donations of $100,000 to fund the college’s new Hanson Technology Center.

The cohort programs will cover manufacturing, Tribal leadership and development, and gaming, hospitality, and culinary management. Pokagon Citizens, employees, and custodial parents of Pokagon children can take advantage of the partnership with Lake Michigan College. These initiatives are scheduled to be ready for students for the Fall 2017 semester.

· Pokagon Citizens interested in manufacturing can take related courses at Lake Michigan College and earn an associate’s degree or higher. Through this program, they can also receive apprenticeships with Mno Bmadsen's businesses Accu-Mold and D.A. Dodd, which both require a highly skilled manufacturing work force.

· Those interested in working for Tribal Government can take advantage of a new program that will study Tribal sovereignty, Potawatomi culture, and the intricacies of Tribal law and government-to-government relationships.

· Pokagon Citizens and employees can study gaming, hospitality and culinary management at the college. Four Winds Casinos employees are also eligible.

Lake Michigan College is a 2-year community college offering associate degrees, certificates, and a wide range of continuing education and business and industry training.
