LCC 2021 Theme:

Think Global, Act Local

Exploring Sustainability & Belonging

The SLC Vision is “Rooted in our communities, we will be a globally recognized college delivering innovative learning opportunities and preparing career-ready graduates to be leaders in their fields.”

To accomplish this vision, our SLC in Five Strategic Plan has identified the following multi-year objectives:

  • “Expand opportunities to gain global perspectives” (Employee Success)

  • “Engage in strategic industry collaborations” and “Build upon partnerships with all levels of government for mutual benefit.” (Community Engagement)

The 2021 LCC Theme aims to explore these two diverse challenges, build our global perspective (Think Global), and engage our local partners and industry (Act Local). It will also challenge us to think more broadly about sustainability by exploring "social sustainability" by elevating the role belonging, equity, diversity, and inclusion play in our everday lives.

Expanding our Knowledge of Sustainability

This theme also supports SLC commitment to gain international recognition for our sustainable efforts (i.e., using Sustainability Tracking, Assessment, and Rating System (STARS) to receive a gold standard / an program by Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE)).
