#StartingUpPA Alumni Spotlight

Sarah Lanphier  |  Nuts About Granola®  |  Elizabethtown College '09

During college, Elizabethtown College student Sarah Lanphier needed a concept for a fundraiser to benefit the school triathlon team, and Nuts About Granola was born. Sarah packaged and sold her peanut butter granola recipe and made enough to cover the team’s trip to nationals.  Over the course of her remaining three years at Elizabethtown, Sarah developed the business hand-in-hand with the college’s faculty and staff.  In 2008, the company was officially incorporated. 

Since then, Sarah has appeared on the Rachael Ray Show, has been featured in 35 media publications, and owns two retail locations. Additionally, Sarah created the NAG Innovation Scholarship at Elizabethtown College, selling all the granola on Elizabethtown’s campus and funding the scholarship using a portion of the sales.

Congratulations on your success, Sarah, and thanks for leading the way as Pennsylvania’s independent colleges and universities start up PA!

Alvernia University President on National Panel Discussing the Future of Independent Higher Education

Thomas Flynn, president of Alvernia University, participated in the recent meeting of the national steering committee of college and university presidents which began to assess the future of independent colleges. The meeting, held in September in Washington, D.C., was organized and hosted by The Council of Independent Colleges, which includes AICUP as a member.

With the guidance of the steering committee, the Future of Independent Liberal Arts Colleges project will explore new approaches to higher education, alternative college business models in the context of disruptive social and educational trends impacting American higher education, and the distinctive aspects of independent liberal arts colleges that are critical to fulfilling higher education needs in the United States. The project will provide a new opportunity to lead the national conversation about what it means to offer a high-quality education in the 21st century. The project is funded by the Lumina Foundation.
