PUTNEY, Vt. — Landmark College held a winter Convocation Ceremony for 50 new students on Saturday, January 24, at 9:30 a.m.. The 200 attendees traveled in light snow to this semi-annual event that launches each academic semester. Convocation—from the Latin “to call together”—is an opportunity for voices from across the College to speak to the incoming class.
Landmark College has received a $200,000 grant award from the Roger I. and Ruth B. MacFarlane Foundation to grow its online learning division. This award will fund a web-based program director position at the College, and it will support new LD-friendly online coursework at the undergraduate, graduate, and high school level. “The MacFarlane family understands the need to move forward with technology in education and business,” said Dr. Peter Eden, president of Landmark College. “The grant enables us to redouble efforts in this critically important area.”
