Dr. Joe Schaffer

Full Bio

Dr. Joe Schaffer considers himself a community college evangelist. Far from success in his early college pursuits, an associate’s degree changed his life for the better. In repayment, his professional commitment has been to strengthen the mission of the community college locally and nationally. Dr. Schaffer is currently the President of Laramie County Community College, Wyoming’s largest community college. Prior to joining LCCC, Dr. Schaffer spent nearly a decade at Montana State University-Great Falls College of Technology (now Great Falls College), serving in a variety of academic and administrative roles. He received his Associates of Arts degree from Bemidji State University, a Bachelor of Science from The University of Montana, his Masters of Science in Technical Communication from Montana Tech, and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from the University of Montana’s College of Education and Human Sciences.
