In memoriam of more than one year since we left campus and moved to a virtual work environment due to a world-wide pandemic, responses to three questions were gathered.  Many of these will be read by members of our LCC community. Please see the entire collection of responses here.

This session is the result of several faculty and staff recognizing a need and a desire to collectively acknowledge the experiences of this past year. The group included Barb Clauer, Annescia Dillard, Anne Heutsche, Brad Hicks, Jeff Janowick, Megan Lin, Jim Luke, Melissa Kaplan, Pam Smith, and Jon Ten Brink. It connects to the Live Together project created last year by Luke, Janowick, Heutsche, Clauer, and Kaplan along with Suzanne Bernsten and Joe Esquibel.

The three questions that were posed to faculty and staff:

1. What Have You Lost?

2. What Do You Hope to Keep with You Moving into the Future?

3. What Gives You Hope?
