LCCC Prepared Pledge

Students at LCCC must uphold the college’s Honor Code and Code of Conduct, which includes high standards for respectful behavior that builds a supportive campus community for all. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, students, faculty and staff are required to adhere to campus policies designed to ensure a clean, safe, healthy environment in which learning and services can take place. LCCC is requiring all students, faculty, staff, and members of the public who enter LCCC properties to wear a face covering (mask) which covers their mouth and nose; to be symptom-free of any illness; to practice social distancing; and to practice good hygiene by washing their hands regularly.

All performing students and community members are expected to adhere to these safety protocols and pledge to honor the values of social responsibility, personal accountability and social citizenship as outlined on the LCCC website: https://www.lorainccc.edu/security/lccc-prepared/
