Register April 1 at LCC to Vote

Lansing Community College (LCC) and a coalition of community organizations are making it easy for students, staff, and community members to register to vote by holding a voter registration drive on Wednesday, April 1.

The drive will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. , April 1, in the Gannon Building Common’s on LCC’s downtown campus.

Dialogue with President Knight, April 15

The Strategy Forums were well-attended and I appreciated the spirit of the discussions surrounding the Strategic Plan, Operation 100%, and the Climate Survey. With your continued insight and involvement we will move forward with innovation, service and a focus on student success.

I invite you to join me in conversation Wednesday, April 15, 10-11 am in the Health & Human Services Building room 024. Light refreshments will be available.

There is no agenda. I would like to speak for a few minutes, and then I will take questions from you. I’m sure this forum will be productive and offer a valuable exchange.

Thank you for all that you do for the students of LCC.
