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.

Diversity & Inclusion

Grow our internationality, diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Students’ best opportunities for learning take place when they study in a community that spans a wide range of experiences, traditions, cultures, perspectives, and beliefs. The diversity of the U.S. population of high-school graduates is growing rapidly, and students abroad are increasingly interested in the liberal arts. Thus, increasing the diversity of our community is ethically right, crucial for our students’ preparation for their futures, and a necessity if our college is to be strong.
