Lansing Community College

Hello and welcome to the Cesar Chavez Learning Center (CCLC). We are so glad you are interested in our programs! Please take a look around the website. You will find a great deal of information about the programs and services offered in the Center. We have also included a wide range of student resources for you to utilize throughout your academic career. Please visit our page as often as you would like to access the most up to date information and materials for our programs. It is our hope that you will find this website helpful and informative. Thank you for visiting the CCLC webpage-be sure to stop by our new office located on the first floor of the Arts & Sciences Building as well!

Committed to the values of meeting the needs of our times, social justice, radical hospitality, student leadership and cultivating brave spaces, we have created programs focused on instilling these values and meeting the needs of our students. We believe that all students, regardless of age, family background, learning style, or diverse-ability, should have equal opportunity to reach their full personal, academic, and career potential.

The Center specifically focuses its programming and services within four key areas:

  • Inclusion
  • Access for underserved students
  • Cultural awareness
  • Mentoring

Programs at CCLC

Access - Access to College and Careers with Excellence through Student Support

The ACCESS Program provides wraparound student support to ensure students are equipped with the skills necessary to make the transition to college, persist following their first year of enrollment, and ultimately to graduate or transfer to a four-year university. It is designed to support current and potential LCC students, especially those of low-income, First-Generation, diverse-abilities, and underrepresented populations.

LUCERO - Latinos Unidos con Energia, respect y Orgullo – Latinos United with Energy, Respect and Pride

The LUCERO Program is designed to attract and retain students of color, particularly Latinos, by providing a space where they would feel welcome and receive support. LUCERO focuses on developing student skills in academics, leadership and professionalism.

MAP - Men About Progress

Men About Progress (MAP) is an initiative established by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion to increase, encourage and support the inclusion and educational success of male students of color, particularly Black males, as well as any student who expresses interest. MAP serves as an intentional intervention to assist program participants in their academic and career endeavors, while promoting and advocating for an improved educational experience at LCC and enhanced quality of life.

WISE – Women Inspiring Scholarship through Empowerment

WISE seeks to inspire, support and empower women by offering educational opportunities to develop knowledge and leadership skills, build professional and personal connections, promote the presence of professional women, and foster mentoring relationships.
