Lane transforms students' lives through learning

We acknowledge that students occupy many roles, including those of family members, workers, members of social groups, and citizens of an increasingly interconnected world.

We provide educational experiences, support services and institutional structures that enhance student learning and success. 

In our work in and outside of the classroom, and in our daily interactions with students and one another, we aim to empower all students; we encourage students to grow, to take risks, and to assume responsibility for succeeding in all aspects of their lives.
