The Council for the Advancement of Standards recognizes that, “Theory of involvement contends that the amount of energy--both physical and psychological--that students expend at their institution positively affects their development during college. Students who are involved in campus life also devote considerable energy to their academic programs, spend considerable time on campus, participate actively in student organizations, and interact frequently with other students.
Le Moyne College is approved by the Regents of the University of the State of New York and is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.
