According to the school, Lane College is a small, private, co-educational, church-related four-year institution, which provides a liberal arts curriculum leading to baccalaureate degrees in the Arts and Sciences. With strong ties to the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, the College’s Mission is to develop the ‘whole student.’ Consistent with its history and tradition, of preparing ‘preachers and teachers’ of color, the College has a particular interest in preparing professional educators. Lane College is proud of its tradition of providing educational opportunities for those who may not otherwise have had the opportunity to attend college. It places priority on academic excellence, but is equally as concerned about the student’s spiritual, social, and ethical development. Lane College is committed to preparing students, through its liberal arts curriculum, to assume meaningful positions in their chosen occupations or professions and/or to pursue graduate studies. This is done through a guided, nurturing program of intellectual experiences that enables students to identify and develop their ‘Power of Potential.’ Lane’s tradition includes first-generation college students who have genuinely transcended their circumstances. The motto, ‘esse non videri’: ‘to be, not to seem’ is evident in its alumni who have become successful attorneys, physicians, educators, entrepreneurs, and scientists throughout the nation and the world. Since its inception, Lane College has strongly believed in the ‘Power of Potential.’ This is achieved in an environment that is sensitive and nurturing, but challenges students to achieve new levels of excellence at the same time. High standards are expected in and outside the classroom. Lane College trains leaders. Lanites develop an appreciation for art and culture and are life-long learners with a special love for history.\r\n
