Lane College, founded in 1882 by Bishop Isaac Lane, a former slave, is one of
the nation’s oldest Historically Black Colleges and the first four-year institution
established by the Christian Methodist Episcopal (CME) Church. It is a proud
charter member of the United Negro College Fund (UNCF). Located on 55
beautifully landscaped acres, Lane provides a life-changing experience and
educational opportunity to its students. The College is unabashedly invested in
transforming ordinary students into extraordinary scholars by providing them
with the highest quality education. The mission of the College is to pilot students
through programs of intellectual and spiritual experiences that will prepare them
to assume meaningful positions in their chosen occupations and professions,
and to pursue graduate studies. Lane offers baccalaureate degrees in biology,
business, chemistry, computer science, criminal justice, English, French, history,
interdisciplinary studies, mass communication, mathematics, music, physical
education, physics, religion, and sociology. Its slogan, The Power of Potential®,
asserts that one’s potential is not necessarily predicted by one’s past performance.
