2022 Comprehensive Local Needs Assessment underway

LCC is beginning the process of completing its 2022 Comprehensive Local Needs Assessment (CLNA). The assessment addresses how Perkins programming and funding will support career and technical education programs and assist “special populations” students. It must be completed every two years by colleges that receive funding.
To assist with the effort, the college created a core working group of representatives from various areas who will compile the information. Depending on the topic, programs and departments might be called on to provide their expertise.
This process is ongoing, beginning this month and running through the end of November.
The CLNA core working group includes:

  • Center for Data Science: Dana Cogswell, Co-Chair
  • Perkins Administrator: Eduardo Suniga, Co-Chair
  • Arts & Sciences Division: Kent Wieland/Dawn Cousino
  • Financial Services: Anita Lycos
  • Health and Human Services Divsion: Elizabeth Burger
  • Student Support, Special Populations: Felipe Lopez Sustaita
  • Technical Careers Division: David Stowell
  • Academic Affairs Support: Penny Tucker

Questions about the CLNA process for this year can be directed to co-chairs Dana Cogswell, at cogswd@lcc.edu, or Ed Suniga, at sunigae@lcc.edu.
