Our outreach to various segments of our community takes the guise of many forms. Beyond providing advocacy and support to underrepresented students and student groups, we serve as a referral agentreferring students to other offices and departments when necessaryand act as an informational resource for all offices and departments within the College regarding multicultural issues.

Academic and Personal Support

We provide one-on-one support for students to ensure their academic and personal success. Students can receive support services with regard to mentoring, advisement, time and financial management, and study skills.

Inclusive Excellence at LVC

The Lebanon Valley College community values free speech, open dialogue, civility, and respect, and is committed to ensuring that LVC is a welcoming and safe place for all. The Committee for Inclusive and Intercultural Learning (IIL) actively promotes and maintains an inclusive and equitable environment for all members of the LVC learning community.

Diversity at LVC means individual differences (personality, learning styles, and life experiences) and group/social differences (race/ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation, country of origin, and ability as well as cultural, political, religious, or other affiliations).

LVC's strategic focus on Inclusive Excellence remains a critical part of the College priorities.
