Work in Student Life

We believe that LCC offers a unique missional experience to those who are interested in using the Christian liberal arts educational model and a relational campus community in engaging students in transformational education. The scope of this mission now extends to 50+ countries, as more than 65% of our students come from outside of Lithuania. In fact, we essentially offer an opportunity to affect lives in countries that would be very difficult to enter in other ways, countries such as Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Belarus, and more recently Syria and Iraq, etc. As you are considering the possibility of joining LCC, please note that the footprint of the opportunities extends far beyond the small country of Lithuania.

At a time when students make critical life decisions, the Student Life Division at LCC seeks to give shape and purpose to their out-of-classroom learning experiences. By leading programs and building relationships, we provide students with a practical outlet for leadership and character development. The model of holistic education is new the only program of its kind in Eastern Europe. Our philosophy is firmly grounded in the belief that learning and character development happens in all areas of life: inside and outside of the classroom. We believe in the COMMUNITY that can help each person to find identity, meaning, and purpose in life.  We have the opportunity to work from the ground up — responding to the needs of students in the region and developing effective, relevant programs. We seek to engage all students in a holistic experience that reaches across spiritual, physical, and intellectual dimensions. The need for people committed to the transformation of students and society at great.

Community Life

With Residence Life and Intercultural programming at the core, we seek to engage students in actively experiencing a holistic community through everyday living and learning, intentional programming, cross-cultural communication, conflict resolution, and restorative practices. Through events and opportunities designed and led by our professional staff and student leaders, we invite individuals to find their place and voice in a caring community, celebrate diversity, and share lives together.  LCC realizes that for many students, there is difficulty at being far from family and have counseling support for whatever troubles students are facing.
Positions: Associate Dean of Students, Student Counselor, Resident Director, Intercultural Education Coordinator

Career Development and Student Support

We seek to provide quality relevant student services while educating students to take responsibility, be proactive, and plan well. Navigating academic life and also life after graduation is not easy. Our staff offers a variety of useful workshops as well as individual counseling throughout the academic year. Students always know they can get all of their questions answered whether it’s related to student ID cards, medical assistance, academic support, summer employment, or various internship opportunities. With around 60 % of students coming from outside of Lithuania, we have established a smooth process for all migration-related affairs.
Positions: Director for Student Support and Career Development, Migrations Affairs Coordinator, Office Assistant, Student Success Center Coordinator

Spiritual Development

The Spiritual Life program encourages all students to explore what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. We do this by providing tools and programming that introduce students to, and encourage students to ask questions about, the Christian faith. The Spiritual Life program also challenges Christian students to grow in their faith through Christian fellowship across cultures and through spiritual practices. Finally, the Spiritual Life program encourages service and justice in our local and world communities by connecting LCC students, staff and faculty with the needs of the local community in order to serve others and to right injustices.
