TRANSFORM OUR CAMPUS.
We can become one of the great liberal
arts colleges of the 21st century, but our campus must reflect that
greatness. A new arrival sequence to the College envisions a public-

will house the Center for Enhanced Academic Experiences and the
Outdoor Leadership and Education program, as well as admissions,
alumni and development offices.
LEVERAGE OUR COLLECTIVE STRENGTH.
Lycoming has been an
excellent steward of its resources. This is our moment to bring new
and nimble financial power to the College through the Lycoming
Fund. The ultimate in crowdfunding, it provides a direct and
immediate way for donors to leverage their gifts by targeting the
students and programs that will benefit most.
n Oct. 1, President Kent Trachte announced
the Campaign for a Greater Lycoming. With
a goal to secure $65 million by June 30, 2019 — $45.5

The Campaign will not simply raise critical
resources in service to a premier education in the
liberal arts, it will raise the level of institutional
ambition, reputation and belief in what is possible.
Our college is on an upward ascent. We embrace
challenges, dream big and act boldly.

our history and our future as we collectively work to
be recognized as one of the best liberal arts colleges
of the 21st century. We will harness our strengths
and invest in educational opportunities that are
