Lafayette invites investment and collaboration through a wide variety of partnerships with the College’s faculty members and students.
Such mutually beneficial networks are a mark of excellence for the College as one of the nation’s premier undergraduate institutions of higher education, distinguished by a blend of both liberal arts and engineering programs.
There are a multitude of ways to support the College’s mission and strategic direction, including funding for teaching and learning, financial aid, inclusive excellence, the arts, humanistic and scientific inquiry, community partnerships, and facilities and equipment. Lafayette Connects cultivates and stewards relationships with organizations to advance the College’s strategic priorities. Lafayette Connects guides these efforts through two teams: Institutional Projects and Grants and Corporate Connections.
Corporate Connections is a gateway to Lafayette’s greatest resources—knowledge and people. The Corporate Connections team creates and stewards the working relationships that advance both the objectives of industry and the mission of the College.
Lafayette welcomes alliances with private foundations and government agencies. The Institutional Projects and Grants team works with offices and programs across the campus to coordinate and ensure strong collaborations.
Research is a central activity at Lafayette with broad impacts, and faculty members across the campus regularly involve students as research collaborators both in and out of the classroom. Lafayette Connects can facilitate larger initiatives involving faculty teams as well as projects with individual faculty members and classes.
Lafayette College’s home community of Easton is one of three cities that make up the Lehigh Valley—Pennsylvania’s third-largest and fastest-growing metropolitan area, located within a 75-mile drive from both New York City and Philadelphia.
