In addition, students can register with the Student Career and Employment Office to receive access to the Lee College Rebel Job Link, a computerized job database listing current employment opportunities available to students and alumni.

Most of these students have never been to college and have been out of school for a period of time. Most have a family and realize their need for a results-oriented technical education to support themselves. Students receive college credit to attend a six-week class, four days per week. They learn college expectations, decision making, goal setting, time management and study strategies, career exploration, conflict resolution, and more. Eligible students may qualify to receive childcare assistance during Project LeeWay, as well as when they enroll in technical programs. Pending continuation of funding by the federal government, Project LeeWay is offered twice each year, preceding fall and spring semesters. Special populations Office The Special Populations Office serves students with economic barriers to success. Pending continuation of federal funding, the office assists eligible technical students with childcare assistance, a small lending library of technical textbooks, emergency transportation assistance, a small food bank, referrals to community resources, and Project LeeWay. Student health Lee College does not provide a health center or campusbased medical care for its students. Students are strongly encouraged to obtain their own health insurance coverage. The College does provide emergency (red) telephones and instructions in the hallways of each campus building and first aid boxes in the instructional laboratories where there are chemicals, tools, or equipment that increase the risk of injury to students and faculty. 42 In addition, campus security officers carry first aid kits, are equipped with radios, and have an established procedure for contacting an emergency medical service in the event of a serious injury, accident, or illness.
