LHU’s Poorman College announces partnership with Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club

The Stephen Poorman College of Business, Information Systems and Human Services at Lock Haven University has announced a partnership with Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club, better known as “Wolves,” one of the leading clubs in the Premier League in England, the world’s foremost professional soccer league.

As part of the collaboration, LHU students studying sport marketing in the Department of Sport Studies, will explore the development of the Wolves brand in the USA, while other students will collaborate on projects linked to the Wolves Americas brand development strategy.


 Points of Pride

Lock Haven has a $40 million state-of-the-art science facility that opened in 2013.

​Students pursuing Health and P.E. will earn certification to teach both health and physical education. Most institutions only offer one or the other.

Students majoring in Health Science who take Advanced Anatomy will learn anatomy in a very hands-on way by exploring human cadavers in the LHU cadaver lab.

​Our Business and Accounting programs are so closely aligned that students can earn a B.S. in both areas by taking a few extra courses.​
