Lebanon Valley College waiting on approval for new Harrisburg office

Lebanon Valley College is coming back to Harrisburg.

President Lewis Thayne announced Wednesday at the school’s annual opening breakfast the college will re-establish an office at the Dixon University Center with two post-graduate certificate courses offered.

“I’m excited about that, it will be great to be back in Harrisburg,” Thayne said.

The opening of the office is scheduled for January, according to Greg Buckley, the school’s associate dean for graduate and professional studies. However, it is still pending approval from the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Buckley said he is expecting to receive a decision on the approval at the end of the month.

The liberal arts college in Annville Township previously had an office in the Dixon University Center until 1989, then had other locations in Harrisburg through the mid-2000s, Buckley said. The school, however, decided to close the satellite office.

Now, Buckley said, the college is in a better position to offer the certificate programs in business administration and health care management. The college hopes the new office is successful enough that more programs can be offered in the future.

“We felt like there is a niche there for these post-bachelor certificates,” Buckley said. “It’s a nice alternative to a full graduate program.”

Buckley said Lebanon Valley has been in very early talks with Elizabethtown College — which also has an office at the center — about collaborating on future programs.

Bloomsburg University, Immaculata College, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Millersville University, the Rochester Institute of Technology, St. Francis University and Shippensburg University also have offices at the center on North Second Street.
