Making a difference in the lives of our students

"Yes is a powerful word.

The Lakeland community is thinking about the many ways a “yes” mindset can help us meet student needs and increase student success, which ultimately means community success.

When our students achieve their goals, we all win. When our children can affordably gain skills and college credits and transfer that into jobs and degrees, our community is elevated. When employers find workers with needed skills and students stay in the region, our future becomes brighter."

Bob Cahen, executive director at The Lakeland Foundation, shares an open letter with our alumni and invites you to say "yes" to Lakeland again.

Donor-Scholar Breakfast ~ Save the date!

While the snow is still flying, think spring and mark your calendars for our Annual Donor-Scholar Breakfast. This year’s event will be held in the atrium of the new health technologies building Wednesday, April 3, 2019, from 8-9:30 a.m.

The Lakeland Foundation Annual Donor-Scholar Breakfast recognizes the generosity of Lakeland Foundation donors and celebrates the perseverance and success of our students. The event features student and guest speakers and provides a special opportunity for scholarship recipients and other students to meet and share their experiences and dreams with the donors who contribute to Lakeland Foundation scholarship and program funds.

The Lakeland Foundation currently manages more than 150 active scholarship funds and awards an average of $500,000 each year to hundreds of Lakeland students who need assistance to overcome the financial barriers to academic success.

In addition to scholarship funds, The Lakeland Foundation funds support various programs and activities that make a difference in the lives of Lakeland students. Foundation funds are supported by individual donors, private and corporate foundations, and local businesses.

Invitations and details will be coming soon. Not a donor but interested in becoming one? Please use the link below to our donation site. We hope to see you there!

Lakeland takes steps to offer student housing on campus

Lakeland plans to boost student retention, enrollment and revenue by offering student housing on campus starting in August 2020.

Studies show that students who live on campus are more engaged and therefore more likely to complete their college education, leading to higher graduation rates. About 25 percent of two-year colleges in the U.S. now offer on-campus housing, according to data from the American Association of Community Colleges.

The college's board of trustees voted Dec. 6 to enter into agreements with Beyond Owners Group, Inc., a Pennsylvania nonprofit corporation, to assist in the development and financing of the project. The board is expected to vote on the final agreement at its February 2019 meeting.
