Office of the President

We invest in our campus, and we invest in our students.

As I write this letter, Landmark College has the highest enrollment in our history. We are now a more career-focused liberal arts institution, offering both two- and four-year degrees. Students pursuing our associate degrees persist to graduation at rates higher than the national average for two-year institutions, and our students ultimately earn baccalaureate degrees at rates above the national averages not only for students with LD, but for all college students.

These are just some of the tangible outcomes of a Landmark College education. The intangibles offered by our unique learning environment are too numerous to mention. Landmark College not only provides skills and strategies leading to success, we also foster a sense of understanding, respect, and tolerance, qualities that are desperately needed in today's world. We give our students the confidence they need to succeed. In order to build these qualities, we provide tremendous resources to our students. And we continue to focus on safety and security, so that students can gain experiences in an environment that looks out for them.

Our science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs are increasingly strong, and our B.A. in Liberal Studies has proven very popular. We have added two new four-year degrees: a B.A. in Studio Art and a B.S. in Computer Science.

The new $10 million, 29,000-square-foot Nicole Goodner MacFarlane Science, Technology & Innovation Center, opening in August 2015, will house our STEM programs and will be home to the Landmark College Institute for Research and Training (LCIRT). LCIRT conducts research and development in the field of LD alongside our faculty, staff, and students. The College recently received about $750,000 in funding from the National Science Foundation to support several LCIRT-led projects. 

We continue to develop expertise in online programming for students with LD, and for educators and professionals in the field of LD. Many of these efforts intersect with the research we are conducting to determine how the brain works for an individual who learns differently, and with the projects which will provide insight into best practices for the educator in a variety of disciplines.

There is real value in a Landmark College education. The best way to appreciate this opportunity is to visit us on our beautiful campus in Vermont. You will witness our methods, our approaches, our students as they gain more strengths every single day. I look forward to meeting you!
