After the National Day of Racial Healing, Lansing Community College decided to extend its anti-racist programming. The programming for the National Day of Racial Healing was extended to one week, with guest lectures and live-streamed events. As of March 2022, the college began implementing its “We’re Better than That" anti-racism campaign, a 10-year initiative to 'further demonstrate the college’s commitment to being a welcoming and inclusive community for everyone.' No mandatory Critical Race Training sessions are yet required of students. However, see developments below:
