Revising the Mission and Vision Statements (December 2011)
The College of St. Scholastica's mission statement answers the question, ‘Why do we exist?'
The accompanying vision statement answers the question, ‘What do we want to achieve in the future?'
The St. Scholastica Board of Trustees, in discussions at its fall 2011 retreat, reached the conclusion that the ideas of
sending forth and supporting alumni
should be included in the mission and/or vision statements. We'd like your help. Please look at the current wording of these statements and help us revise them to include life-long learning and sending forth and supporting alumni.
Mission Statement - Shaped by the Catholic Benedictine heritage, The College of St. Scholastica provides intellectual and moral preparation for responsible living and meaningful work.
Vision Statement - The College of St. Scholastica will be widely regarded as an academic community grounded in the rich Benedictine heritage and sending forth thoughtful leaders, sharpened and sensitized by the liberal arts, who are committed to serve and to transform the world.
Our goal is to include these points at the request of the Board, not to revise the entire statements. Brevity is a virtue here.
Send your suggested wording to email@example.com
We'll consider all submissions and use them to craft the versions we present to the Board of Trustees at its meeting in Februrary.
Thank you for your best thoughts.
