The 35 trustees who comprise the Board are the best and brightest from business, industry, government, health and public sectors, and non-profits.
Our role is fundamental oversight of the College, a most enjoyable challenge given enrollment records nearly every year for the past decade and a flourishing curriculum at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
At LC, you’ll find a vibrant, close-knit community offering impressive academics; faculty/student research; leadership and study abroad opportunities; athletics at the varsity, intramural and club levels; community service and much more. We as trustees are proud to help make a positive difference in this community of difference makers.”

“This is a very special campus, a place where students experience rich academic and service opportunities that take them around the world and throughout the region.
It’s a place where our young people see faculty and staff as friends as well as teachers, mentors, and leaders… a place where athletics – varsity and intramural – play an important role in the development of our youth.
Our liberal arts and sciences curriculum and professional programs promote critical thinking skills, self-confidence, self-esteem, a diverse view of society, and respect for others. It is a curriculum that embraces experiential learning through internships, service to community, study abroad, and leadership opportunities in more than 100 clubs and organizations.
We also have a core institutional value of sustainability and are therefore committed to educating our community on the obligation of promoting and modeling a sustainable environment. We are investing in nearly 2 dozen campus-wide green initiatives at a cost of approximately 5 million dollars to walk this most important walk and reduce our carbon footprint.
As you visit LC, you will find a college on the move. Honored as one of only 40 Colleges That Change Lives nationwide, we are working constantly to help maximize your collegiate experience.”
