No matter how short or long your time at LCC has been, we’re hoping you’ll reach into your memory banks and share with us what you know about the image below. Any bit of information about the image is helpful, including the location, the event, a person or a random story related to it.
As a large employer, LCC is
required each tax season to provide Form 1095-C to all employees who had
offers of health coverage and enrollment in that coverage for the previous
taxable year. The 1095-C displays months you were offered coverage, months
you and any eligible dependents were enrolled in coverage, and the minimum cost
to be enrolled in coverage (which could be different than what you actually pay
to be enrolled).
If you were offered medical coverage through LCC in the taxable year 2020, you
will receive your 1095-C in the mail to your home address on file with Human
Resources. Please be
on the lookout for this mailing to arrive in the coming days.
As a reminder, the 1095-C is not
required to file your 2020 federal income tax returns.
Training is this Tuesday, Feb. 23 9:30-11:30 a.m. The college is looking for employees interested in serving as Inclusion Advocates to enhance equity, validity and diversity in the college’s hiring processes.

They serve as a formalized part of the hiring process and help committee members and hiring leaders in search and screening activities.
If you can’t make this week, training will be offered again 3-5 pm on March 30.
This week, we’re applauding Nikki Cogswell of
“Nikki is very accommodating and demonstrates on a regular basis a
willingness to help others within and outside of Human Resources,” Anita
Evans wrote in the award. “Recently, a department needed assistance
to complete a process. This was brought to Nikki’s attention and, without
complaining that it wasn’t her job, she offered to follow up with the
respective department and walk them through the process. It is truly a
pleasure working with Nikki!”
Applause also goes to Patrick Harrison of Human Resources.
“I don’t know how I would have accomplished some of my tasks over the past
few months without Patrick,” Mara Fisher wrote in the award. “He
is knowledgeable and so willing to explain and teach, even when it is not the
most convenient time for him. Thank you for your patience and your helpful

Today, LCC released the
revised 2020 Annual Security Report. The report is to comply with the
requirements of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and
Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998 (Clery Act). The report is required by
federal law and is our good-faith effort to ensure you are aware of your
surroundings and have the information you need to keep yourself safe.
The data reflected in the 2020 Annual Security Report was revised due to the
fact that, on Jan. 25, 2021, the LCC Board of Trustees approved a policy
revision of “Prohibited Sex or Gender Based Discrimination, Harassment, and
Sexual Misconduct” policy (consistent with Title IX rules). No data in
the report has changed. Only the policy has been revised.
The Annual Security Reports contain statistics for the previous three years
concerning crimes that occurred on campus, on non-campus buildings, on
properties owned or controlled by the college, and on public property within or
adjacent to campuses of the college. The reports also include college policy
statements concerning campus security: crime prevention, reporting of crimes,
timely warnings, emergency response and evacuation, alcohol, drug use and
The Annual Security Report is available on the Public Safety website. Written copies of the
reports are available upon request at LCC Police and Public Safety office,
located in the Gannon Building, 411 N. Grand Ave., Room 2110, in Lansing.

Public Safety strives to enhance the quality of life on campus by building

At the Academic Senate’s Feb. 12 meeting,
Senate President Monica Del Castillo and LCC President Steve Robinson both
spoke about a renewed commitment to collaboration and transparency.
Del Castillo said she has heard from colleagues a resounding need for
relationship repair and growth, and the need for culture change. She said she
hopes to lead the Senate in more small group work and less divisive discussion.
Robinson was invited to address the Senate following a meeting with Del
Castillo and Provost Sally Welch. He said he heard in that meeting about a
feeling that faculty are unvalued, unheard and disenfranchised, and he affirmed
his dedication to collaboration, shared governance and open conversation. He
said he hoped his actions in the past six months have demonstrated his
commitment to extensively and authentically engaging the Academic Senate and
Senators then broke into small groups to discuss how they feel about the
current direction of the Senate and what they hope for its long-term future.
Senate leaders collected feedback and will develop proposed action items based
on the information.
Student Senators Mackenzie Caksackkar and Amalia Gonzales also addressed the
Senate to ask for the addition of a chat box or virtual assistant on LCC’s
website, as well as a more intuitive search function and navigation. Caksackkar
also emphasized the importance of Brainfuse and encouraged further promotion of
the on-demand tutoring service.
In addition, senators reviewed some bylaws revisions, received an update on the
membership of the budget team, learned more about progress on the Guided
Pathways milestones, and heard about Blue, the college’s new course evaluation
survey that is replacing IDEA (see separate article, titled “New course evaluation
system goes into effect this semester”).
Finally, senators approved the Curriculum Committee’s recommendations for
course revisions to MKTG 210 – Marketing on the Internet. That recommendation
now goes to the provost for approval.
The Academic Senate will next meet 9-11 a.m. Friday, Feb. 26. All employees are
welcome to attend or to make public comment. A Webex link for the meeting will
be sent in the operations email on Monday, Feb. 22.
