1 Reason Why Not
Mental health concerns are prevalent among college students: an estimated 26% of Americans ages 18 and older—or about 1 in 4 adults—live with a diagnosable mental health disorder. Mental health concerns impact students' ability to succeed: more than 80 percent of college students felt overwhelmed by all they had to do in the past year and 45 percent have felt things were hopeless. Mental health concerns can be deadly: suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among college students, claiming the lives of 1,100 students each year. Yet there is hope… Based on over two decades of work with over 1.8 million college students, we have been at the forefront of helping college students tackle some of the most difficult challenges they face during their collegiate career. Through thousands of hours of practical application of working with both students and higher education professionals, Collegiate Empowerment has developed 1 Reason Why Not™ to help students & universities overcome mental health challenges.

Please Note – All sessions will be held at the Alumni Center, located adjacent to the Rothrock Library, Room AC 107/108.  Each workshop will be presented at 2:30 p.m. and again at 5 p.m. 
 
The Leadership Empowerment Series at LCCC has been designed to provide students with an opportunity to enhance and develop their leadership potential.  The workshop topics are selected to provide a broad overview of the many skills, issues and theories that are relevant to learning and understanding the complex dynamics of leadership. Topics covered will address societal issues; career competencies that employers are looking for as identified by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE); and current events.   Additionally, students are encouraged to seek opportunities on campus and within our communities to practice and further develop their leadership competencies.
