Welcome to the Lakeland University website, and thank you for taking a few minutes to visit this site and learn more about the university. Whether you are a high school student searching for the right college, a working professional motivated to complete or to start your college degree, a parent of a Lakeland student looking for news and information about the university or a Lakeland graduate catching up with the latest at your alma mater, this site will help you become and stay engaged with Lakeland.
For more than 150 years, Lakeland has been dedicated to expanding access to higher education. This commitment is realized through generous financial aid packages, student-centered initiatives such as small class sizes, faculty who are passionate about teaching, opportunities that allow students to explore careers early in the collegiate experience and flexible, affordable evening, weekend and online programs.
As our mission states, we are here to educate our students to earn a living, to make ethical decisions and to lead purposeful and fulfilling lives distinguished by intellectual, moral and spiritual growth. This mission attracts people — faculty, staff, and students alike — who seek engagement, accept challenges and want to become part of an authentic community. We have a talented faculty dedicated to both teaching our students and helping them find their role in a fast-changing world, and all of our community members make students feel at home with a welcoming, encouraging and accepting attitude. This university becomes a part of students’ lives by helping them achieve things they never thought possible.
I invite you to spend some time on the website, learn more about Lakeland and join us in this noble cause.
Lakeland University President
