    About Lock Haven University

    From a legacy of preparing teachers for the Commonwealth’s public schools, Lock Haven University is in the process of expanding its mission to respond to evolving workforce needs. The previous five years have brought additions to liberal arts and professional programs on both campuses, and we anticipate that trend to continue. We envision modest and gradual growth of the undergraduate, on-campus programs, but much steeper growth in demands for access to graduate, continuing, and distance education programs. We will need to make difficult choices to stay competitive, while retaining our core identity as an institution. Encouraging positive yet sustainable growth will be a challenge for the university over the next five to ten years, including the need for significant addition to and upgrading of physical facilities and technological infrastructure. We will be seeking more national recognition of quality academic programs in the form of accreditation, as well as building upon the relationships and partnerships we have at the local and international levels. Over these five years the entire campus community will be engaged in finding the resources needed to build on our strengths and to reach our goals.
