Message from the Dean

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Lansing Community College’s Health & Human Services (HHS) Division webpage where you will find a plethora of programs to explore and consider!

If you are someone who is inspired by helping others then we likely have a program that will fit your interests. From nursing, MRI technology, dental hygiene, paramedic, child development, mental/social health, fitness/wellness professionals to other health and human service career opportunities, learning how to help people of all ages, lifestyles, ethnicities, and cultures live their best life is at the core of every one of our programs in the HHS Division.

Some key points of interest for you. . .

  • student success is our priority and defined as mastering the skills, attitudes and behaviors that support success on a professional certification or licensing exam, and prepares the student to excel as an entry-level professional in their chosen career
  • programs are developed in collaboration with area employers, based on labor market need, and include motivating work-based learning opportunities
  • well-equipped labs and classrooms provide a state-of-the art environment for student learning
  • programs uphold the high standards required by agencies of regional and specialized accreditation, national certification, and Michigan state licensure
  • every HHS faculty member has extensive education and work experience in the field in which they are teaching
  • programs are designed to minimize time and cost to completion, and to allow students to expand their workplace opportunities for advanced positions and higher wages through stacked and latticed credentials
  • there is need and desire to expand the diversity of students, faculty and staff in the HHS Division to better represent the community we serve

I invite you to join the “essential workers, the healthcare heroes” of the COVID-19 pandemic through one of our HHS programs providing you with an honorable and rewarding career of helping others live their best life!
