我很高兴与你分享 MCLA 2017-2022年战略计划. This document is the culmination of an inclusive process that began in September 2016. Led by an 18-person steering committee representing all segments of the college community, the process generated voluminous and valuable input through outreach and engagement opportunities that included open forums; surveys of students, faculty and staff; questionnaires for the 校董会 and the Foundation Board of Directors; a survey of alumni; roundtable discussion with community members; and many meetings 在校园.
的 plan represents a call to action, charging all of us to challenge our assumptions, think creatively about how we approach our work, and act strategically as we pursue the shared goal of making MCLA a better, stronger, and more diverse institution. 的 result of the visioning, goal setting and planning we undertook is more than a document; it is a living plan that will engage all members of our college community.
I am impressed by the work of so many that created this plan that calls us to think differently about learning and teaching for a changing world. 这个计划会留住我们 focused, inspired, and in pursuit of excellence.
Already a public liberal arts college with an excellent reputation for providing an affordable, high-quality education, MCLA is ready to think differently as we begin our quest to be the best public liberal arts college in the nation.
Over the next five years we will create new educational opportunities for our students and new professional opportunities for our faculty and staff. 我们将强调 importance of communication; we will share MCLA’s story and values more widely. 和 we will make inclusion and diversity defining characteristics of an MCLA education.
I know our community will work together to advance 这些目标 and enhance the positive impact MCLA already has - on our students and their families, our 18,000 alumni, our faculty and staff, our city and the region, and the Commonwealth.
I am excited about MCLA’s future and by the collaboration of my colleagues to achieve 这些目标.
