The Catalog Committee is making decisions regarding future editions of the LLCC Catalog. As part of this process, the committee is gathering input from the college community. Please take a minute to respond to three questions posed by the committee.

Catalog Survey

The survey will remain open until Friday, April 10. Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Emails to students may not have been delivered March 12-18

Dear Faculty and Staff,

Due to a malfunction in our computer network affecting email service, most messages sent from an LLCC employee account to an LLCC student account between 11pm Thursday, March 12 and 11am March 18 (yesterday) were lost. If you sent a message during that time, you may want to resend it just in case.

Only new messages originating from employees were affected. If you replied to a student, those messages were not affected.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Thank you,
ITS
