Lock Haven University (LHU), seeks an innovative, collaborative, and accomplished leader committed to excellence and equity to serve as Associate Vice President for Advancement. This is an outstanding opportunity for a talented and highly successful fundraiser to join the larger team of advancement leadership within the integrated universities of Lock Haven, Bloomsburg, and Mansfield, as well as lead the advancement efforts of Lock Haven University specifically.
Lock Haven University enrolls 2,920 total students, of which 2,466 are undergraduates and 454 are graduate students, with 93% from the state of Pennsylvania. The Clearfield campus has 173 enrolled students. LHU is a member of Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education. Over 34,000 LHU alumni live in every state and work in a wide variety of professions. Students at Lock Haven University may participate in 21 intercollegiate athletic programs including NCAA Division I field hockey and wrestling.

Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) engaged in an assessment that led to a system redesign effort in 2017. Lock Haven, Bloomsburg, and Mansfield were joined together in the northcentral/eastern regions of PA to expand program breadth while maintaining essential residential characteristics of each campus. Each campus maintains its own foundations and alumni associations, as well as their athletic teams, brands, colors, and mascots.
