Gannon Ramp Construction Begins in June

Beginning in June, the LCC Gannon Ramp will undergo construction. Please make note of these temporary changes and plan accordingly.

Construction Dates and Locations

June 1 – July 18: Level 3 of the Gannon Ramp will be closed. Select Sections of Level 2 will also be closed during this time.

How this affects employees: This summer, employees will need to park in the surface lots in order to retain parking for students.

How this affects Common Ground: Level 3 of the Gannon Ramp will be closed for Common Ground. However, Level 1 and Level 2 will be open for public parking.

For questions regarding the Gannon Ramp construction or parking, please contact Cyndi Rooker at (517) 483-9701.

Concur Refresher Session May 29

Financial Services is offering a face-to face Concur refresher session for those employees who have already taken the online Concur training, but have questions on specific items in their expense report.  The next Concur refresher session will take place on May 29, 2015 from 10 am-noon.  Please sign up through LMS as there will be limited seating available.  Only those employees who have already taken the online training will be able to attend the refresher sessions.  Only employees who are charged with purchasing or traveling on behalf of the College should have access to Concur.

Banner Unavailable Thursday Night

The Banner System will be unavailable this Thursday for maintenance.

Maintenance Window:

Start: 6 pm on Thursday, May 21, 2015

End*: 11 pm on Thursday, May 21, 2015
*Note: All efforts will be taken to complete this work as soon as possible, and the Banner system will be brought back up when we are finished with our work.
Affected Systems:
The following systems will be unavailable during this maintenance window:
– Argos
– Application Manager (UC4)
– Banner Document Management (BDM)
– Banner INB
– Banner Self Service
– Banner Workflow
– myLCC (Will be available, but the Banner portlets will be unavailable while Banner is offline)
Further Banner Upgrade Details:
ITS has to implement the quarterly Oracle and operating system patches in addition to some Banner module updates.  This work would typically be performed during a standard Friday maintenance window, but due to the upcoming Memorial Day weekend starting on May 22nd, it was requested that this window be pulled back on this one occasion to Thursday evening instead.  The System Operations Coordinating Committee (SOCC) approved this maintenance window on Thursday as there is no conflict with the academic calendar since this date is between semesters and all post-Spring semester work will have been completed by then.  During this time, the affected systems noted above will be unavailable.

If you have any issues with the Banner system, please contact the LCC Help Desk at or 517-483-5221.
