StART

StART is the local term for our online behavioral incident reporting system. The Director of Counseling and Community Standards is the administrator for this database. StART is utilized for online reporting of perceived violations of the Code of Student Conduct (Behavior Concern) or possible emotional and mental health concerns. In addition, there is a form for reporting of alleged violations of the Academic Honesty Policy (Academic Dishonesty) which are to be completed after the instructor has discussed the imposed violation and action with the student. The final form is for the reporting of injuries that take place during class (Course Related Injury). Please visit the StART FAQ section located in the MYLCCC Portal or contact our office if you have any questions.

StART also stands for Student Assessment & Response Team which is our behavioral intervention team.
  • If a student is in immediate crisis, contact Public Safety immediately!
Reporting Incidents

Faculty and staff who need to file a StART report for a behavior concern or academic dishonesty should visit the MYLCCC portal and click on StART which is found in the Launchpad. Next, click on the appropriate form. Students and other members of the campus community who need to file a concern about a student’s behavior may do so by completing the following online StART Report. (Academic Dishonesty reports may not be filed here). All reports are reviewed by the Director of Counseling and Community Standards.
