LCC faculty and staff

We asked faculty and staff what they love about working at LCC. Here's what they said.

Brad Benjamin 

Brad Benjamin

Faculty, Mathematics

“I love the collaboration between employees and the ability of all of us to put student success at the top of our agenda.  I love the fact that LCC is still the type of place where we hold doors for each other.  I love that LCC is small enough that each individual employee is able to make change on the campus.  Most of all, I love that faculty are empowered with the ability to try new ideas in the classroom and not be penalized when they do not work.  This attitude fosters an environment of innovation that is contagious."

My very first day when President Bailey said 'Good morning Tanya welcome to LCC' in the parking lot was mind blowing to me that he remembered my name. Proving this is a family."

“The best part of LCC is the students. Our students are here because they want to learn something, and they are determined to learn what they must to become the person they want to be. The second best part of LCC is that all the staff and faculty want to help our students. Our staff and faculty will do everything they can to enable our students to achieve their goals.  LCC is the most supportive place I have ever worked."
