STRATEGIC PLAN


Renewing Our Place

We speak of renewing our place. We are a continuation of the first college in Arkansas and the first to admit women. While the civil rights struggle engulfed our nation, we were the first historically white college in Arkansas to admit African-Americans. We were the first college in the United States to offer a comprehensive support program for students with learning differences. Ours is an extraordinary heritage built on an ethic of service and justice.

Renewing Our Place seeks to not only call upon the admirable character of our past, but also to envision a sustainable future in which all who come here may experience the profound transformational effects of this place.

This “place” is two-fold; we seek to renew and reinvigorate our campus and its citizens and to define our role in the world of higher education. We must be ever alert to new possibilities, ever vigilant to make the most of what we have, and ever mindful that each task we perform—however mundane—is part of an effort to change the world for the better. We believe that renewal will grow out of our prudent and intentional efforts to direct and guide our resources.
