Honor Our Leadership Mission
For 75 years, our mission has been to educate students for thoughtful and productive lives and responsible leadership in business, government, and the professions. Our signature approach to leadership, personal growth and well-being is a liberal arts education that emphasizes economics and political science.
- We will honor our leadership mission by endowing our distinctive model for undergraduate education.
- We will reinforce our applied approach to the liberal arts and deepen and broaden our intellectual rigor through support of faculty recruitment and retention, the development of powerful curricula, and multidisciplinary education through co‐teaching across differences in both perspective and expertise.
- We will strengthen our institutes, expand support for faculty‐student research, and allocate greater resources to develop advanced literary and quantitative capabilities.
- The value that we place on diversity derives directly from our mission; we must instill a respect for differences that will prepare our students to lead in increasingly diverse and globally oriented social, political, and economic environments by building on signature programs: the Athenaeum, the CARE Center, and the Open Academy.
