LANSING, Michigan – Lansing Community College is now offering a Diploma in Insurance and Risk Management.

Mary Stucko, president of the LCC's insurance program, said, "The LCC is the first community college in Michigan to offer an associate degree in insurance and risk management. This program offers a great opportunity for those in our region and across the state to enter the insurance business. "

While a crisis is looming on the horizon in the insurance industry, LCC is well positioned to have a significant impact on the dilemma of the labor shortage.

In an effort to create a dynamic cadre of insurance professionals, a group of insurance professionals and education officials came together to come up with a strategy, recommendations and a sense of urgency, designed to cope with the talent crisis.

The insurance program offers the opportunity to participate in the 2 + 2 program with Olivet College or Ferris State University, allowing them to complete their first two years and earn a LCC associate degree, then transfer them to Olivet or Ferris to complete their license. Students can choose to participate in a 3 + 1 program that gives them a bachelor's degree after three years at the LCC and a final year at Northwood University.

In addition, LCC is the only community college in the country to offer students of the insurance program the unique opportunity to be part of the Iota Sigma Gamma Insurance fraternity, where students will learn, network and grow. as professionals in the insurance sector.
