Lakeland traces its beginnings to German immigrants who, fleeing from religious controversy in Europe, traveled to North America and eventually to the Sheboygan area where they settled in 1847.

In 1862, they built Missionshaus (Mission House), a combined academy-college-seminary. The school provided training in the liberal arts followed by a traditional seminary curriculum, as most of the early students were destined to become ministers.

As the needs of its students changed, Mission House gradually broadened its purpose. By the end of the century, enrollment was no longer limited to pre-theological students and the college had developed strong programs of study in a wider number of disciplines.

Known simply as Mission House for 95 years, the college adopted the name ""Lakeland"" in 1956 and the seminary moved to Minneapolis/St. Paul in 1962 to become United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities. The era of Mission House had ended, but Lakeland became heir to its campus, tradition and educational mission. Eventually a satellite campus was established in West Allis to serve Milwaukee area students.

A second campus was founded in Shinjuku, Tokyo in 1991 and is known as the "Japan Campus", featuring academics and English for Academic Purposes programs, and is MEXT/Monkashō-accredited as a foreign university/college. Students from that school can obtain an Associate of Arts degree and can choose to attend Lakeland or another American university for extended education.


Stephen A. Gould, Ph.D., is President of Lakeland College. Meg Albrinck, Ph.D., is Vice President of Academic Affairs.
