Strategic Plan: Vision 2020

Alma College’s mission is to prepare graduates who think critically, serve generously, lead purposefully, and live responsibly as stewards of the world they bequeath to future generations.

Priority 1: Student Learning

Alma College will provide challenging developmental learning experiences that enable students to graduate with the knowledge and skills that support their personal and professional goals. We will develop campus-wide programs and curricular innovations that support students’ educational needs, thereby improving graduation outcomes.

Priority 2: Community

Alma College will nurture an inclusive and respectful campus community where students, faculty, staff, alumni and the general public can work together to learn, grow and serve others. We will ensure that our campus offers a richer, more diverse intellectual environment that acknowledges the increasingly global society into which our students will graduate. 

Priority 3: Responsible Stewardship

The college’s resources will be managed responsibly to strengthen our financial position and maintain long-term fiscal health. We will energize supporters to expand the resource base. We will ensure that the physical campus is the equal of peer institutions and meets the needs of students, faculty and staff alike, emphasizing environmental sustainability.
