Give to the Alumni Scholarship

Impact for generations

For our 25th anniversary, we launched a project to raise the $25,000 USD necessary to fund the Alumni Endowed Scholarship. So far over 100 alumni have contributed to the fund, but we need your help to reach our goal. Every contribution, even a small monthly contribution—the cost of a cup of coffee—will bring us closer to the goal.

Current fund status

We are less than $6,000 USD from our fundraising target! Your generous contribution today will ensure a place for a talented future LCC student as interest generated by the fund will support an annual scholarship for an LCC student.  

Inspiring future leaders

You know LCC was worth every cent, not only for the lessons and lectures, but also for the experience and the life-long friends. However, for some students LCC is still out of reach. Your contribution today could help a high school senior join the ranks of LCC’s successful alumni tomorrow.

From Lithuania to New York City: an LCC alumna who eagerly and passionately fights for human rights

2021-02-25

Jolita Crosland, is a native Lithuanian and a 2006 LCC International University graduate, having earned a Bachelor’s degree in International Business Administration. Throughout her years of studies at LCC, Jolita has been an active student, involved and engaged in various activities. After graduating from LCC and Klaipeda University, Jolita immigrated to the United States where she currently lives with her family. In the early stages of her employment, she started by performing regular jobs common to immigrants in the United States. Later she enrolled in a Master’s degree program at New School University in New York. After finishing her graduate degree, Jolita worked within different small companies. Currently, Jolita is the Executive Project Manager at Yancey Consulting in New York, a Black-owned Organization that promotes the rights of marginalized groups in their region and beyond. Jolita describes the workplace as a psychologically safe environment that is constantly seeking to impact historically disadvantaged communities. Some of the responsibilities she performs daily include strategic planning, leading meetings, as well as creating and organizing projects. She affectionately calls her current workplace “LCC Number Two” because it is an environment that also paves the ground to growth, questioning, and critical thinking. When Jolita was asked about the most valuable lesson and experience she carried from LCC International University, “critical thinking” was at the top of her list. Jolita said that critical thinking was a very crucial and significant concept that was introduced to her for the first time at LCC. She believes that critical thinking leads to attaining a learning behavior, that creates the opportunity to question, analyze and critically evaluate the message. Because of this, Jolita encourages everyone to become listeners, to ask questions, and always seek ways and opportunities to learn and grow in different aspects of life.  In talking about her transition from LCC to her current role as an Executive Project manager, Jolita claims that the transition was easy since her LCC Liberal Arts education provided validity and accreditation. “The LCC diploma is so meaningful to me personally and academically. I always feel proud of it.” Jolita affirms that studying at LCC was the best decision she made, as it prepared and equipped her for the career she is currently pursuing. Married to a man of color, today Jolita is eager to fight against racism and oppression. Every day she wakes up with a mission to support and elevate the voices of the ones, who remain muted in society. The mission of her current role is to bring people together and educate them on topics such as anti-oppression and anti-racism. “This is our fight, it is not enough to just talk about it,” she claims. Jolita encourages everyone to actively and intentionally fight to help others. She emphasizes the significance of being mindful of the language we use daily, aware to not verbally wound and offend the marginalized community. Jolita talks about four significant aspects of anti-oppression and anti-racism; which include diversity, inclusion, equity, and access. Jolita explains that diversity is about bringing people together, collecting more voices, and bringing in more perspectives. Embracing diversity leads to more robust and innovative environments. Inclusion means creating an environment that welcomes and meaningfully includes these perspectives in decision-making. Jolita discusses that is not enough just to talk about the matter but to actually step in to practice it. When Jolita mentions equity, it means fairness for everybody. Jolita emphasized that all these aspects teach individuals how to be mindful of their actions and language, to not embrace only one way but to open up to other options and ways out there. Jolita concludes by affirming that we all have unconscious biases because we are socialized to believe a certain point of view. Nevertheless, she calls everyone to be conscious of their biases by challenging themselves to ask questions and to think critically. This is the way one learns how to appreciate diversity and how to actively engage in the fight for anti-oppression and anti-racism. In case you’ve missed the Coffee with Alumni discussion with Jolita Crosland, here is the full video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOb9xqX1i9k&feature=youtu.be&ab_channel=LCCInternationalUniversity

FROM THE DESK OF THE PRESIDENT

2021-02-24

What a difference a year makes!A year ago this week (February 2020), I flew to North America. I spent a wonderful week, visiting LCC friends. I was in British Columbia,* and I remember hearing about the spread of this strange virus just south of the border, in Washington State.(*See photo of Marlene’s last dinner party in North America, in February 2020.)Fast forward to today . . .LCC is happening fully online.Many of our students are scattered around the world, in their home countries.More than 200 of our students are living in the residence halls on campus.All of our classes are online.Our chapel services are online.Our creative programming for students is online.Our admissions work is online.Our fundraising work is online.Our basketball games can be watched only online.Our board meetings are online.Our graduations have been online.In fact, in Lithuania, a country on lockdown, we are restricted to only two people outside together, no travel between cities, only grocery stores open . . . for two full months already.Despite all of these “I can’t believe this is our reality!” statements, God continues to walk alongside us, as we seek to be His servants in this place called LCC International University.How do I know this?In the past 2 weeks, I’ve had the opportunity to visit with several LCC students . . . in separate online calls. In each case, the student (whether currently on campus or far away in their home country) has expressed gratitude for the caring community of LCC.I’ve heard stories of new student friendships forming, between students who were “randomly” assigned to the same breakout rooms online.I hear alumni stories being shared with current students, encouraging them to focus on the values being taught at LCC.I note the simple appreciation of walks to the sea.I hear from professors who are testing their online creativity skills in order to encourage students.As we move into the middle of the Spring 2021 semester, we wonder what the summer will hold for our students. Will any of them have the opportunity to work, to help off-set their university costs? Will this be their second summer in a row of no employment?This year’s budget was increased significantly in order to assist students with financial need, particularly because of their difficult family situations and because they were unable to find summer employment. We are seeking a 25% increase in our Annual Fund this year because of our desire to help our students.Consider being part of this thriving Christ-centered community through your financial support.And . . . consider joining us for an upcoming Zoom Coffee event, where we will share several campus updates, including through the voices of our students! Thank you!The donor community that supports LCC has been faithful in consistently supporting the mission of LCC through financial giving. Thank you!GIVE TO LCC ONLINEGod working through you—the LCC donors—is the reason that the LCC community thrives, with the largest student body in our history.  We have much to be grateful for, even online. Ačiū / Thank You!Marlene WallPresident
