“Everyone truly wants you to succeed”

"The most valuable lesson I learned at LCC is that people are the most valuable asset in every organization. Having talked to many alumni, they always said that people are what creates the real LCC experience, and now looking back, I couldn’t agree more. It is our amazing staff and faculty who share common values and help us grow not only as professionals but also individuals, and it is the students who later become your second family. It has taught me to care about each person I work or interact with. I believe that LCC is the place where you can create the experience you want. You can always find the right people to help you implement even the craziest idea or project and also find the resources to get it done. Appreciate that at LCC everyone truly wants you to succeed."

Wamulundy Simwinga: Being a part of an international community means being respectful to the views of others.

2021-06-22

Say hi to Wamulundy - the Fall 2021 Junior from Zambia! He has come all this way to LCC to pursue his education in Business Administration. Being able to play basketball with the Moose team and study with other international peers by the sea, especially coming from a land-locked country, makes LCC the perfect place for him.In a family of sisters and a brother, Wamulundy is the youngest one of five. In Zambia, a middle-class family can have the things they need and want, even if it isn’t always easy. Learning to work hard for things fostered Wamulundy’s determination. He also grew up being very adventurous. He shares that he has tried a few different activities like dancing, football, and skating, although none of them stuck with this tall teenager. People around him suggested he try basketball, and at 14, fell in love with the sport. “Actually, when I was 14, some of my friends started doing drugs,'' shares Wamulundy. Concentrating on the sport and cutting off toxic friends kept this aspiring player from temptations and likely saved his life in the long run. For Wamulundy, the sport is not just an activity he enjoys, but rather it’s also an activity he is thankful for. “If it weren’t for basketball, I wouldn’t be here,” he says.Basketball also brought this Zambian student to LCC, although not in the way most would expect. Originally Wamulundy wanted to study in the United States, but that plan didn’t work out. He then made a video being upfront that he was looking for a university where he could join affordable studies with the sport. The Moose Basketball coach, Marius Tamolis, happened to see the video and contacted him, informing him about all LCC has to offer. This was exciting news, as he knew that Lithuania had a rich basketball culture. LCC, also being a distinctly a North American style university, further influenced Wamulundy to come.Now, Wamulundy will be a Junior in the Fall of 2021. In his time here the international community particularly stands out to him. “We come from different places and we believe in different things. If we judge each other, we’ll bring no good relationships and no good will come out of it.” He also adds that in his two years at LCC, he has learned how to be more respectful of others’ opinions and views. Wamulundy remarks that Zambia is a rather multicultural country as well. There are numerous Muslims and even Hindus living in his home country, although he grew up Christian, as many Zambians do, since Christianity was brought by the British colonial forces. The Business Administration major shares that after the studies at LCC are concluded, he plans to develop his career back home in this multicultural setting in Zambia. Wamulundy is particularly interested in logistics, although he has many other business ideas he wants to develop in order to help his community back home.

Introduction to International Relations: Analysis of Different Levels 

2021-06-21

According to InternationalRelationsEDU, International Relations is the study of the interaction between nation-states and non-governmental organizations in fields such as politics, economics, and security. The broad area of International Relations analyzes the relationships between countries and the drive for their interactions. This field requires highly skilled experts to tackle the issues that transcend national boundaries, with a deep insight into human rights, global poverty, the environment, globalization, and political policies. Such policies are not driven by sentiment, feelings, or abstract morality. Politics are driven by the interest of countries. Recently, Dr. Scott Neumann, the Chair of the International Relations and Development department at LCC International University, discussed the importance of International Relations, different countries' policies that operate on different levels, and represented the analysis of all levels.Looking at the interests or policies of a certain country at different levels, it is important to distinguish what shapes those policies. One of the key factors is the personality of an individual leader. It is a well-known fact that the media firstly portrays a country’s leader’s personality and attempts to explain policies based on that portrait. This might be the easier way, but it’s not the most accurate. For example, for the last four years, people saw the narcissism of the leader of the United States, Donald Trump, and shaped their view about the country based on this particular character. Knowing that the policies don’t change at their core, helps understand the true significance of a political leader, who contributes to the image in one way or another.International policies of the country are often driven by domestic political needs by the need for leaders to gather political support. This type is a common practice in a democracy or a republic that has a system of public voting. In this case, political leaders must look strong, devoted to the voters, depending on the situation, in some cases even find a way to please major lobbying groups. As the country’s economy shrinks, the government turns to international affairs to gain support. But this system can deteriorate the situation, and weak nations become declining powers. Such countries tend to take more risks to regain power, better the situation in their countries, and sometimes end up losing more. This system is also adapted in dictatorial countries. Although dictators are not up for voting, the leaders still need support to keep their position. The main difference is that in the democratic system, the person is out of power, and loses office, while in the dictatorship, the tendency has extended to the prosecution of the leaders. Preserving your leadership status is not only about proving your power, but also making the public satisfied.During the Cold War, ideology was one of the factors shaping foreign policy. But shortly enough different ideologies became conflicted/ conflict of interest. People and leaders’ worldviews, and ideological outlooks result in differing interpretations of facts, and also their choices. In the United States, one of the most popular ideologies shaping people’s worldviews is liberalism. On the international level, this can be described as a reference to free trade, democracy. If the country can present necessary tools to support the democratic system, it will most likely receive support from the United States.The Interstate level of International Relations is responsible for the relations between countries, concerns security matters, and is also responsible for international economics. Every country must protect its borders, to ensure public safety. The alliances are built up to protect the borders, to ensure overall safety. Another matter is international economics that operates within the interest of the movement of resources, purchase, sale, and labor. The interest to protect the trade worldwide is as important as the safety of the country's borders. Nations are determined to shape their policies based on the security of trade and borders.To coexist and thrive, every country must have a global system that accounts for relations of countries, as well as certain formal or informal rules, norms, agreements between nations. Since the end of world war two, a general norm has been passed not allowing one country to annex another country, especially using violent means. This matter was formally enforced in the First Gulf War over Kuwait. This refers to hegemony, which is the political, economic, or military predominance or control of one state over others, and is indirect enforcement of rules.The final and deepest level of International Relations analysis is based on geography, also known as the Longue durée. To a great degree, geography imposes itself on the foreign policy of countries and shapes it. Natural borders are one of the factors that have shaped it. For example, the United States, Great Britain, and Japan have prospered to a great extent, as they have natural borders and are easily defended. Other countries have to go the extra mile on spending more on safety and defense. Longue durée also refers to agriculture, to elements of weather and soil. It has always been noted that a prosperous, and successful country is considered the one that can feed itself. “The global superpowers of the Cold War - the United States, Soviet Union, and China contained one of the most fertile agricultural regions in the world. But at the same time, looking at the most common places of conflict today, the countries that have the worst agricultural situation dominate,” says Dr. Scott Neumann. This particular problem is not a factor to resolve, but rather a factor that shapes a policy.The levels of analyzing International Relations are the tools to describe the international conflicts and relations between nations. To understand how international relations operate, it is important to note that in the increasingly interconnected world, it might take new approaches, but the core factors are the same. Successful trade policies between nations, cooperation, solving global issues, ensuring the safety of the country’s borders come all into one entity - international relations. Policies are often shaped but not determined by the leaders, so the satisfaction of the leader to its public is an important outcome. As the global society expands and develops, international relations will evolve accordingly, while we explore more interesting ways to link our complex world.
