Dec 2020 – Muskie Pride

A gift for President Black

We are gathering stories and letters of thanks from our Lakeland community for President David Black’s (final) retirement! A memory book will be created for him so he can read how much we appreciate everything he has done for Lakeland. Click here to leave a note to be included in Dr. Black’s memory book. You can also make a gift in honor of Dr. Black. All gifts given in recognition of Dr. Black’s retirement will support student scholarships.

Become a “Lakeland Champion”

Each year, hundreds of generous donors write out their checks, put a stamp on the envelope, and mail their donation in. Or, they have a reminder in their calendars to give online. Now, giving to Lakeland is more convenient!


We’ve launched a new giving program, the Lakeland Champion Club, which makes giving to Lakeland easy. You can make automatic donations weekly, monthly, or yearly, depending on your wishes. There’s no need for reminders or stamps. You choose when and what you want to donate, and we’ll handle it from there!

[Un]Common Ground Campaign Results

The word “success” does not begin to describe the remarkable results of the UnCommon Ground campaign…and it was all because of you! 

We’ve put together a snapshot of the dollars received: who gave them, where they came from, and what they are being used for! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for supporting the mission of Lakeland University!

Our alumni are represented in a variety of work environments and are eager to share advice and help our current students! 

Whether it is mentoring, job shadowing or helping with practice interviews, there are many opportunities to assist current Muskies in their education. Are you ready to help another Muskie out?
