Since 1969, the Lehigh Valley Association of Independent College’s success has been founded on the principle of collaboration. Our unique consortium, one of the oldest in the country, consists of 6 member colleges and universities in the Lehigh Valley, as well as 6 associate member institutions in the eastern Pennsylvania region.
Each member is stronger and more distinctive as a result of the opportunities and resources optimized through LVAIC.
LVAIC is a community of strong, independent colleges and universities in eastern Pennsylvania growing stronger through collaboration that optimizes opportunities and resources for students, faculty, and staff.
LVAIC’s early aspirations sought to nurture academic research and professional development for faculty and staff and expand educational options for students. Now, we continue to work towards advancing and enhancing the uniquely competitive strengths of each of our member institutions.
