LANSING, Mich. – Dr. Steve Robinson officially assumed his position as Lansing Community College’s seventh president July 20, 2020, following the retirement of Dr. Brent Knight.

After a national search, Robinson was selected to lead the college into a new era. He arrives at LCC from the presidency at Owens Community College, bringing nearly 30 years of community college experience.

A lifetime educator, Robinson returns to Lansing where his teaching career began at LCC as an intern teaching WRIT 121. His Michigan community college experience includes 15 years as a community college faculty member, 10 years as president of a faculty union, and six years as a board member of the Michigan Education Association (MEA) in Lansing. At the university level he served as a member of the graduate faculty in English at the University of Michigan-Flint. He also served as a chair and faculty advisor in the Doctorate in Community College Leadership (DCCL) program at Ferris State University, as well as the Doctoral Program in Higher Education at the University of Toledo.

“I expect Dr. Robinson to be a successful leader at Lansing Community College,” said LCC Trustee board chair Lawrence Hidalgo, Jr. “He is the right person at the right time to take LCC to the next level in these challenging times.”

Robinson returns home to the Greater Lansing area, having lived here for more than 12 years. He attended Michigan State University where he earned a Ph.D. in English as well as bachelor’s and master’s degrees. His master’s degree is specifically in English Community College Teaching.
