Lakeland University is a private not-for-profit type of university located in Plymouth, Wisconsin. The university was established more than 150 years ago by some German immigrants who cleared the land and constructed the first buildings of the campus. By the end of 1800, enrollments were no longer limited to pre-theological students and strong programs of study were developed with a wide number of disciplines. Lakeland launched the state’s first degree-completion program for working adults in 1978. Lakeland College became Lakeland University on July 1, 2016.

Lakeland University offers 10 undergraduate majors and three graduate degrees. Courses typically meet once per week during evening hours, over 14-week semesters in the fall and spring, and over 10-week semesters in the summer.

University commitment to education goes far beyond the classroom, as we offer our students the opportunity to make a difference and help others. Lakeland students lead the call for a cleaner environment through smarter recycling, providing shelter and food for the poor, and fighting against cancer and other diseases.
