The Lawrence University Community Council (LUCC) was created in 1969 in response to conflicts concerning the ideals of In Loco Parentis. Since then LUCC has been a unique experiment in self governance. LUCC and its committees oversee all non-curricular aspects of the Lawrence community from the allocation of student activity fees and student conference attendance, to funding campus events and regulating such projects as the Newspaper Readership Program. LUCC provides active students with a unique opportunity to participate in the organization of Lawrence.
As a hall representative or committee member, one will receive valuable experience in governmental procedures and a perspective on the concerns of fellow students. Assuming such responsibility is a way in which one can enrich their Lawrence experience and make a difference during their time, and the time of their peers, here at Lawrence.
