Student training notifications

Two types of online training notifications have recently been sent to students:

  1. At the beginning of this semester, all enrolled students received an invitation from our online training provider giving them the opportunity to participate in two online trainings: AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention for Community Colleges. These student trainings are NOT mandatory, but are highly encouraged for all students.
  2. Students who are employed at the college may also receive an invitation for online trainings, which are mandatory based on their employment status.

The student and employee trainings appear on the same platform, but only HR-issued trainings are mandatory. Please note that all training invitation emails will indicate whether the training is mandatory or optional. Questions about the optional online trainings or requests for more information can be directed to Shelby Bedford at shelby.bedford@llcc.edu.

Information about service animals on campus

LLCC Board Policy 1.26 allows service animals on campus. Service animals are trained to perform tasks for the benefit of a person with a disability in accordance with federal legislative mandates. It is important to never distract a service animal from their job by interacting with them. Remember that a disability may or may not be visible. LLCC may not insist on documentation or proof of state certification before allowing the service animal to accompany the person with a disability. In situations where it is not obvious that the dog is a service animal, staff may ask only two specific questions:

  1. Is the dog a service animal required because of a disability?
  2. What work or task has the dog been trained to perform?

Students with a service animal are encouraged (not required) to contact LLCC Accessibility Services. Questions or concerns about a service animal on campus can be directed to Kim Eddings at kim.eddings@llcc.edu.

Compliance and Prevention Office information and resources for a welcoming environment

LLCC is committed to providing a welcoming environment for all members of our campus community. As we begin a new academic year, the Office of Compliance and Prevention encourages all staff and faculty to review the following information and resources:

When meeting new people and working with new students,  allow individuals the opportunity to self-identify their name and pronouns. Using gender neutral pronouns (they, them, their) or someone’s chosen name in place of assigning pronouns based on your assumptions can prevent harmful situations of misgendering or “outing” a student. Remember that a student’s chosen name is used on WebAdvisor class rosters, and that it can be found within the “Pref Name” field in NAE in Colleague. More information and resources are found in this resource.

LLCC respects the identities of all individuals. As such, all staff and faculty are encouraged to familiarize themselves with LLCC’s nondiscrimination policy (1.6) and sexual harassment, other harassment, and discrimination policy (1.7). Contact Shelby Bedford, compliance and prevention coordinator, at shelby.bedford@llcc.edu for questions or complaints of discrimination/harassment, or to learn more.
