The wait is over. At midnight on July 1, Lakeland College will officially become Lakeland University.
Two new majors and several academic program enhancements are part of this historic change, along with a new academic structure and leadership team. The following three schools will house all of Lakeland’s academic programs:
- Business & Entrepreneurship
- Science, Technology & Education
- Humanities and Fine Arts
"These changes position Lakeland as a leader in higher education for decades to come," Lakeland President Dan Eck said. "This is more than just a name change. We are responding to student and employer needs and the wave of developments impacting higher education."
