Center for Financial Analysis Initiative
The University of Lynchburg School of Business and Economics engages students through active learning to build character and prepare leaders for success in a rapidly changing global marketplace.
We are currently raising funds to acquire Bloomberg terminals, which will give our students hands-on experience that will prepare them to work in a professional trading environment, allow real-world trading and investing and will provide them with the opportunity to become “Bloomberg certified” before graduation.
Active Learning Classrooms Initiative
The College is currently raising funds to increase the number of active learning classrooms in Hopwood Hall. These classrooms provide students with a truly unique educational experience. Students write on walls, collaborate in the cloud with help from Chromecast-enabled monitors and easily rearrange the room with wheeled tables and chairs.
Active learning classrooms focus on a range of methods that our professors use to help students move around and work together.
Claytor Nature Center
The Claytor Nature Center has become one of the region’s most comprehensive sites for the study of science and the environment.
Ambitious plans are in place to achieve Lynchburg’s vision of the Center as a nationally-recognized environmental science education and research facility. There is also a great need for improved information technology that will significantly strengthen the Center’s education and research capabilities.
Lynchburg recently partnered with Historic Sandusky, which sits just a mile from campus. An important Civil War site and registered Virginia Historic Landmark, the home is one of the finest examples of Federal style architecture in Virginia’s Piedmont region. Sandusky’s library, document archives, and collections provide a range of options for Lynchburg student research, scholarship and publication.
Office of Equity and Inclusion
Lynchburg educates students from all walks of life. The Office of Equity and Inclusion fosters a climate of diversity where each member of the community has an opportunity to excel. Through multicultural events, training, policy recommendations, and one-on-one conversations, the Office of Equity and Inclusion helps members of the community understand and appreciate diversity and feel included in the life of the institution.
Friends of the Daura Gallery are valued partners helping the Gallery to provide exposure to the arts for students and the community. The support of our Friends allows us to add to the permanent collection, host traveling exhibits, provide exhibit space for students, and offer classes – like those for the Museum Studies minor.
