LANSING, Mich. — This fall LCC will become the first community college to charter the insurance fraternity Gamma Iota Sigma.

Gamma Iota Sigma is a college academic fraternity that was founded in 1966 at The Ohio State University. It is an international professional fraternity organized to promote, encourage and sustain student interest in insurance, risk management and actuarial science as professions.

LCC began offering an associate degree in Insurance and Risk Management in 2018. The insurance industry is one of the fastest growing sectors in the country, and is experiencing a robust hiring climate based in part on the significant number of experienced and qualified workers who are retiring in record numbers.

There are six major insurance carriers with headquarters in Michigan, and all are expected to increase hiring in the Greater Lansing area. “Collectively these companies employ some 7,500 employees in this region and they are committed to increasing those numbers,” said Mary Stucko, LCC Insurance Program Chair.

The chartering of Gamma Iota Sigma at LCC would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors Delta Dental, Accident Fund Insurance Company of America, and Frankenmuth Insurance.
