Welcome to Envision 2020

Dear Friends,

In 2014, we began a collaborative strategic planning process that called on the voices, ideas, and aspirations of all members of the Lebanon Valley College community. Faculty, staff, students, trustees, alumni, and parents contributed to the shape of this plan and the ideas contained in it.

As LVC enters a transformational period in our history at a time of enormous change in higher education, our values and vision will provide discipline and direction. I know I can count on your support as we execute the plan and benefit from its many possibilities.
