Since 1899, we have been committed to educating our students for lives of service.

Learning is most noble when used to benefit others, regardless of a student’s chosen career path. Our students lead rich lives of purpose and meaning, while advancing independent thought, personal integrity and social responsibility. Elizabethtown College is committed to every facet of our students’ growth; academic, physical, emotional, social and vocational.


Based on early success and the generosity of donors, the College Board of Trustees recently increased the initial campaign goal to $60 Million. Through the Be More Inspired. Campaign, we will continue to transform lives, build community, and fulfill dreams for years to come. We hope that you’ll join us.

Enhanced Priorities

These priorities and projects reflect the College’s promise to ensure that the impact of an Elizabethtown College education is long-lasting and far-reaching. Students will acquire new habits of mind and heart—purposeful life work--some in the course of the undergraduate experience, others as they continue to grow beyond our campus. In short, they will be more prepared than ever before to leave their mark on the world in a variety of meaningful ways. The following represent the goals and needed funding for a successful transformation of the Elizabethtown experience.
