Northwest LTC campuses are drug-free workplaces and offer drug and alcohol counseling information to students and staff. The College maintains a Safety Manual and an Emergency Preparedness Plan. Each employee and student at Northwest LTC receives a written copy of the college Safety Rules which are also posted at each campus location. These rules are enforced by the instructor and, if necessary, the Campus Dean. In addition to general safety rules, each department or shop has rules pertaining to that area which are frequently discussed in classes and in safety meetings. The College also engages in monthly reviews to promote safety and utilizes a Safety/Housekeeping Inspection Checklist.
All occupational program curricula include units of study in employability skills. Students are instructed in job-seeking and job-keeping skills. Students study career planning, job application forms, interview techniques, and resume preparation to enhance their future job search. Study of proper work habits, employee/employer relationships, and personal character traits show students how to keep a job. Career Fairs are also offered on each campus each year.
Northwest Louisiana Technical College has established guidelines and standards for student grievances. A grievance is a complaint about the conditions or policies within the College or a complaint about the actions of employees, students, or instructors within the College that affect the environment for the aggrieved student. Northwest LTC seeks to solve grievances as close to the source of the concern as possible.
In brief, Northwest LTC adheres to grievance procedures utilizing an informal and/or a formal process. If the complaint is against a student, discuss the problem with the student’s instructor or department head in which the student is enrolled. If the complaint is about an instructor or another college employee, discuss the problem with the instructor or employee first, then the Director of Student Services, then the Assistant Campus Dean, and lastly the Campus Dean. If a satisfactory solution is not reached using informal procedures, the grievance may file a formal grievance for resolving the matter. For detailed information on student grievances of all types, please refer to the College’s Catalog and Student Handbook.
