Lansing Community College

You Are Welcome Here

LCC's Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) empowers students with knowledge and experiences that promote global citizenship and a more inclusive campus. We embrace a community that brings together students, faculty and staff of all racial, ethnic, gender, sexual orientation, economic, religious, and national backgrounds.

We live our core values through programs that affirm the importance of diverse perspectives, attitudes, beliefs and experiences. Our activities are designed to:

  • Promote an inclusive environment where students, faculty and staff feel safe and supported;
  • Provide diversity, equity and inclusion training opportunities for students, employees and our surrounding community;
  • Acknowledge diverse perspectives;
  • Support recruitment and retention of a diverse population of students and employees; and
  • Improve retention and transition for students from underrepresented populations.

Learn more about the Office of Diversity and Inclusion by visiting our program-specific webpages.

Study Tables

ODI also host Study Tables throughout the year. Study Tables offer an opportunity for students to form study groups and invite tutors to join them in a unique learning environment where music is playing and snacks are provided.
