Routine Civil Rights Compliance Review underway this week

LCC has been selected for a routine Civil Rights Compliance Review, taking place this Wednesday through Friday, Nov. 2-4. This review is conducted by the Michigan Department of Education, Office of Career and Technical Education (CTE). This is a routine review, mandated by the federal government and is not the result of a complaint. LCC was selected through a general selection process, along with other educational institutions.

The CTE reviewers will visit several buildings and campuses. During these tours, the reviewers may speak to any faculty, staff or students. We appreciate your cooperation as we participate in this important review.

Enrolled relatives exemption requests due Nov. 10

Utilizing the collaborative processes specified in our labor agreements and business practices, LCC recently developed a new Statement of Practice (SOP) entitled “Interactions with Enrolled Relatives.” The purpose of this SOP is  to ensure that employees avoid actual or perceived preferential treatment or conflicts of interest when their relatives are enrolled at the college.

This SOP becomes effective at the start of the Spring 2017 semester, but exemption requests for Spring 2017 must be submitted by Nov. 10, or as soon as the employees are aware of the potential conflict, whichever is later.

To facilitate comprehensive understanding of this SOP, the college has developed a list of frequently asked questions, and has revised the Supplement to the Standards of Conduct Policy.

Thank you in advance for your compliance with this SOP. Additional questions may be referred to our Labor Relations Staff:

LCC Performing Arts presents: Serious Money

Opens Nov. 4! For showtimes, dates and ticket information, visit Money 2016 v2 outdoor

A rollicking, very black comedy about financial greed and predatory capitalism run amok by one of England’s leading feminist playwrights. Inspired by the deregulation of the financial markets in England in the mid 1980’s, the play examines the corrupting influence of money that transcends geography, class, race and gender. But this is no dry history lesson: set amidst the wild world of scrappy traders and global power-brokers, this is a stylish play filled with love and lust, suicide and scandal, featuring a talented cast of LCC students and alumni. Contains adult language/situations.

The cast includes Hannah Feuka, Monica Tanner, Alexsandria Clift, Sally Hecksel, Doak Bloss, Jesse Frawley, Ndegwa McCloud, Connor Kelly, Becca Williams, Ben Guenther, Emilio Pido, Anna Hill, Tobin Bates, Rahman Shareef Muhammad, Steve Lee, and Storm Boyer.
