Rendering of the Arnold Health Professions Pavilion

Coming 2018: An Innovative Space for Learning

Soon, students in Lebanon Valley College’s health professions programs will have a new, innovative learning space. The Jeanne and Edward H. Arnold Health Professions Pavilion will open in summer 2018 for students in our doctor of physical therapy, master of athletic training, master of speech-language pathology, bachelor of exercise science, and bachelor of communications sciences and disorders programs.

Hands-on Learning

The $20 million facility will provide flexible classroom space, observation rooms acoustically treated for sound, human performance and gross anatomy labs, flexible faculty office space to increase collaboration with students, and new technologies that enhance teaching. Graduates of our health professions programs will enjoy increased career opportunities as the sector is projected to add five million new U.S. jobs by 2022.

A Historic Gift

The Arnold Health Professions Pavilion is named for Ed and Jeanne Arnold, who made an unprecedented $10 million challenge gift for the building.

Take a tour of the building below, and follow along with us as we share progress toward completion in summer 2018.
