The mission of the Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS) and our 12 comprehensive, public, two-year colleges is to improve the lives of individuals through the transformative power of education and to build thriving communities throughout Louisiana through accessible, relevant programs and collaborative partnerships for strengthening workforce and economic development.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, our top priorities are safety, helping students complete their programs of study by graduating, and entering the workforce. However, these extraordinary times are presenting challenges for students to remain focused on school with COVID-19 threatening student financial security. LCTCS recognizes the issues that are impacting our students’ ability to proceed with their education.
The LCTCS Response and Recovery Fund assists LCTCS students who are on the verge of suspending their educational pursuits when financial emergencies arise. Many of these students encounter barriers that cause them to choose between educational expenses or paying for basic necessities.
The objective of the LCTCS Response and Recovery Fund is to help students who are in need and decrease the number of students who stop attending or withdraw from school due to a lack of funds to cover food, shelter, utilities, daycare fees, etc. It also helps our colleges provide the technology and equipment needed to continue to teach students online during times of crisis.
Your contribution will make a difference in the lives of our students, their families, and our local economy. We ask that you consider making a donation, of any amount, to support a great cause.
