Langara Student Success Course

The LSSC is a free, 9-module mini-course on Brightspace that prepares students for academic life at snəw̓eyəɬ leləm̓ Langara. The LSSC is available 24/7 and can be completed in 5-7 hours.

By instructors sharing information about the LSSC, we anticipate being able to reach more students, resulting in more students completing the LSSC and being well prepared to meet academic expectations in your courses.

LSSC Student Ambassador Program

Beginning in Spring 2021, we began developing an LSSC Student Ambassador program with students who have successfully completed the LSSC and are interested in offering peer support and mentoring to new students. Our LSSC Student Ambassadors program is growing, and the roles of the ambassadors are expanding.

“Through a considered and compassionate approach, we collaborate to find answers to questions and concerns, inclusive of whom to contact if outside our scope of expertise.” 

-Gordon Janzen, LSSC Student Ambassador
