Attention faculty: Student Satisfaction Inventory being administered fall 2018

In 2006, 2009, 2012 and 2015 Lincoln Land Community College administered Noel-Levitz’s Student Satisfaction Inventory (SSI) to a group of randomly selected course sections. The results are used to provide feedback to departments throughout the college to inform and improve student satisfaction and success.

During the month of October, we plan to administer the SSI once again to randomly selected course sections in conjunction with our regularly scheduled three-year cycle. So as to reduce interruption of the selected classes, the survey does not have to be completed during class time. Instead, faculty are simply asked to distribute the survey to students to take with them, complete, and return at the next class meeting. This is the procedure we employed in 2006, 2009, 2012 and 2015. Because of the excellent support of faculty, we gathered meaningful data with minimal interruption of class time. However, if you would like to administer it during your class, you certainly may do so. Administration during class increases the response rate for the survey which gives us better data results. If you do choose to administer it during your class, the survey takes approximately 20-30 minutes for students to complete. If you teach a hybrid or online course, please just post an announcement in Blackboard. Those students will be surveyed electronically.

We ask your cooperation once again with this important project, which cannot proceed without your help. If one or more of your classes are selected through the random selection process, you will receive a packet containing directions and student surveys. Completed surveys should be returned to the Vice President of Student Services office, Menard Hall 1256. Faculty teaching online or hybrid sections will receive just a letter and suggested Blackboard announcement.

Commencement 2018 logistics and line of march

The 2018 LLCC Commencement ceremony will be held this evening at the Bank of Springfield Center and will begin promptly at 7:30 p.m. with the processional. Attached is information regarding Commencement logistics (parking, layout of the center, etc.) and line of march. Please review this information thoroughly.

Regarding parking: The Old Capitol Art Fair is this weekend and artists will be arriving today to set up. Some downtown roads are blocked off and parking may be at a premium, including the Horace Mann parking lot.

Regarding line of march: The line of march is more of a guide as opposed to a hard and fast rule. If you believe you should be somewhere else in the line, feel free to move there.  The faculty marshalls this year are Beth Hoffman and Dean Butzow, and they will direct you to the appropriate location during the seating process. There are 10 seats in a row. So if there are last minute no-shows, you may be bumped up a row depending on the 10-in-a-row seating arrangement.

The line of march will be posted in several locations to refer to upon your arrival. Please line up according to your  line (line “A” [left]  or line “B” [right]) and row number, which will also be posted. Please do not congregate at the front of the line making it difficult for others to get to their assigned place in line.

Commencement is a time when the focus is on our graduating students and their accomplishments. We appreciate your attendance at the ceremony and look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of our students together.

Commencement 2018 line of march

Each year we do our best to ensure that the line of march is accurate. The line changes each year due to retirements, resignations and individuals who have received permission to be excused from the ceremony. Also, there may be some instances where a hire date is inaccurate or there are not only two, but several hire dates. The line of march is more of a guide as opposed to a hard and fast rule. If you believe you should be somewhere else in the line, feel free to move there.  

The attached line of march indicates where you will be seated during the 2018 commencement ceremony. The faculty marshalls this year are Beth Hoffman and Dean Butzow, and they will direct you to the appropriate location during the seating process. There are 10 seats in a row. So if there are last minute no-shows, you may be bumped up a row depending on the 10-in-a-row seating arrangement.
