During a recent interview with Higher Education Today, Landmark College President Dr. Peter Eden shared insights about the College's unique and proven educational model and reasons why rates of success for Landmark College graduates choosing to pursue a four-year baccalaureate degree continue to increase.

Although Eden's visit to Washington, D.C. was focused on finding ways to make Landmark College even more accessible to more students, he accepted the invitation to talk with Steven Roy Goodman of Higher Education Today. "Whenever I have the opportunity to tell the story about this powerful College, I jump at the chance," said Eden. "I'm an educator at heart, and if I can play even a small role in educating people about Landmark College and our students, I'm going to do it."

Watch and listen to President Eden's interview.

Prior to the Landmark College presidency, Eden served as Dean of Arts and Sciences and Professor of Biotechnology at Endicott College in Massachusetts, and was a tenured Associate Professor and Chair of the Science Department at Marywood University in Pennsylvania. He earned his B.S. in microbiology at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and completed his Ph.D. in microbiology from the University of New Hampshire. Eden’s post-doctoral training was in molecular and cellular neurobiology as a Research Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Prior to a strategic shift (professional and personal) to higher education, Eden gained research and management experience in the bio-pharmaceutical industry.

Landmark College was the first institution of higher learning to pioneer college-level studies for students with dyslexia.

Students, faculty, and other professionals from all over the world are drawn to Landmark College for its innovative educational model, one designed through research and practice to help all students who learn differently become confident, self-empowered, and independently successful learners.
