Student Experience

Elmhurst College focuses on student success inside and outside of the classroom, in a community that welcomes and includes all. We offer an impactful, enriching experience that promotes lifelong engagement with the College.

  1. Operationalize our commitment to diversity and inclusivity by developing and modifying programs, policies and procedures to provide a more connected and welcoming campus environment.
  2. Improve first- to second-year retention, persistence and graduation rates for both traditional and transfer students.
  3. Develop additional resources and strategies for the emotional, social, academic, intellectual and financial success of our students.
  4. Globalize/internationalize the campus community by increasing the number of international students and the number of students who participate in study away experiences.
  5. Offer an array of services and co-curricular programs/activities that appeal to undergraduate, non-traditional and graduate students, resulting in a vibrant campus environment.
  6. Create supports for a seamless transitioning to alumni status that encourages life-long connection with the College community.
  7. Improve access to administrative support services, particularly for online, degree completion, and graduate students who may not be able to visit campus during normal business hours.
