LBCC Public Safety Review

Pod
Diverse LBCC students

In 2021, LBCC initiated a review of public safety on campus. The assessment will consider LBCC public safety in light of national best practices and 21st Century safety principles to ensure that our campuses are safe and welcoming for everyone. Input from students, faculty, staff, and community members in this process is important.

LBCC is working with consultant 21CP Solutions to develop recommendations that will be shared with the campus community for consideration and discussion at the June 22, 2022, Board of Trustees meeting and in subsequent meetings.
