As the Elmhurst College circle has widened since 1871, our basic belief in the powerful combination of the liberal arts and professional preparation has remained constant, even as it has been expressed in new forms to meet the needs and opportunities of the times. Our Core Values have also remained constant and we articulate them today as Intellectual Excellence; Community; Social Responsibility; Stewardship; and Faith, Meaning and Values. It is fitting, then, that our Strategic Plan for the next six years bears the caption, Leading with Values: A Vision for Elmhurst College in 2020.
This Strategic Plan offers clear direction for the next steps we will take together to strengthen our College academically, as a community and financially. We encourage everyone associated with the College to read it carefully and to share in the progress we will realize in the years ahead.
