EMU at Lancaster to relocate to new state-of-the-art building

EMU at Lancaster has announced that the campus will relocate from its current site at the Greenfield Corporate Center in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to the Listrak building in Lititz, Pennsylvania, in early summer 2024.

The university will occupy a 15,000-square-foot space on the second floor of 100 West Millport Road in Warwick Township, which is owned and occupied by eCommerce tech company Listrak Inc. EMU at Lancaster executed a multi-year lease and plans to perform some minor upgrades to property infrastructure, IT and communications capabilities. Deepa M. Balepur, co-founding principal for Compass Real Estate, LLC. brokered the transaction.

The new location will provide state-of-the-art facilities for learning with classrooms, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) training laboratory, designated student advisory areas, a cafeteria and coffee bar, ample parking, and outdoor space. In addition to Listrak, EMU will join current building tenants Foundry 48, an event venue, and pediatric physical therapy facility Now I Can.

According to Listrak CEO Ross Kramer, the company now has employees in more than 40 states and has embraced a hybrid work model, prompting the decision to bring in outside tenants.

“Like many commercial landlords, we have reevaluated our physical properties and have determined that we do not need the entire 93,000 square feet of our headquarters building,” said Kramer. “As strong supporters of STEM education, we felt that EMU at Lancaster would be a great fit and believe the new space will provide a learning environment conducive to students’ academic and professional growth.”

EMU at Lancaster has been located at its present location for almost 28 years. The new location offers convenient access to Lancaster Airport, flight training partner Aero-Tech Services, Inc., and a growing network of partnerships with long-term care facilities in the region. The school offers a CNA program and a Bachelor of Science in Leadership and Organizational Management (LOM) with an aviation concentration. Drone technology education will be added to the program in 2024.

EMU at Lancaster provides a range of online degree and certificate programs, including a Master of Arts in Education degree with a nationally-recognized certificate in trauma and resilience and several other areas of specialization. Additionally, students who have taken courses from a technical, community, or four-year college can transfer those credits into the LOM Bachelor of Science degree completion program.

“The needs of today’s workforce are constantly changing,” said Dr. Christine A. Sharp, executive director at EMU at Lancaster. “EMU is committed to providing post-secondary education and professional development training that offers students a competitive advantage. Our mission is to ensure that those who complete our programs are well-prepared to make valuable contributions to the workforce and communities.”
