Page Background

During my second year in office, we continued

to innovate and build momentum; and I

remain optimistic and excited about the future

of the College. We moved forward in implementing our Strategic

Plan, continued to renew the physical infrastructure of the campus,

and invested in our faculty and students.

The opening and dedication of the Lynn Science Center represents

a spectacular addition to the college’s physical plant. With its

traditional Georgian architectural features, the building captures

the look and feel of the College’s historic quadrangle where the

residential campus was brought to life. At the same time, the

modern cutting-edge planetarium, classrooms and laboratories ensure

that students and faculty have competitive facilities in which to teach

and learn. In the Lynn Science Center, the past meets the future.

The renovation of Wesley Hall has stirred excitement on campus.

The upper two floors have been reconfigured as suites and include

lounges and kitchens to support the launch of the Intellectual

Affinity Housing Communities. The ground floor houses first-year

students enrolled in the College’s new first-year seminar program.

Five faculty members are partnering with students to shape the new

programs.

The Lycoming faculty were highly engaged during the past

year. In addition to teaching and mentoring our students, they

have published books, written articles and made conference

presentations. They have also served on task forces that

designed the new Latin American focus for our archaeology

majors, the Center for Energy and the Future, and the new Career

Clusters model of career advising. We also hired nine outstanding

new tenure-track faculty members to fill positions left open by

retirements or departures.
