Lane Institute is located on the Lower-Level of Kirkendoll Student Success Center

In particular, this initiative embodies two of the College’s strategic themes: To promote student success through meaningful interactions to prepare students for life in a global society; and to stimulate intellectual and creative discovery through scholarship, teaching and research. Specifically, Lane Institute helps students to achieve success across their General Education courses and to successfully complete their first sixty hours. Additionally, Lane Institute helps underclassmen to successfully transition from academic sanction to academic good standing. Finally, Lane Institute seeks to empower the campus community to become a trauma-informed community over the next five year.
