A Strategic Plan for
The College of Wooster


Areas of Focus

Create a vibrant, welcoming and strongly-woven campus community

Grow our internationality, diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Build on our history of excellence in the liberal arts and support strategic new academic pathways and connections.

Deepen and make more universal connections between learning in the classroom and engagement with the campus, local community, and the world.


Create a vibrant, welcoming and strongly-woven campus community which supports learning, thriving, wellness, and fun.

Community matters to our mission. We bring students together on a physical campus because the learning students do by making meaning together – in classrooms, dining halls, concert spaces, playing fields, and residences – is crucial to their growth as people and to the impact they will make in the world.
