LSSU Presidential Search Update
Career Services offices moved to the main floor of Shouldice Library to highlight LSSU's focus on providing a career-ready graduate in a variety of professional programs. Career Services is located in the space vacated by Cappuccino Corner.
Lake Superior State University's Presidential Search Committee has been hard at work. They started with over 60 applicants last fall, narrowed the list over Christmas break, and brought the top four candidates to campus for extensive interviews the past two weeks. The trustees will review the responses from all constituencies (students, faculty, staff, alumni and community and tribal leaders) and select the next president, ideally at the Board of Trustee meeting on March 16, 2018. Watch for an exciting announcement later in March!
Academic Forgiveness (Amnesty) Policy has been created at LSSU, which
gives a now mature adult a one-time only opportunity to remove failing grades from semester(s) which occurred three or more years ago, so that the returners can start with a clean slate.

much as an associate's degree. This program
is focused on broadening college access to all learners in the Eastern Upper Peninsula.
