We owe it to our passionate alumni and current and future students to build a strong, vibrant, and sustainable college.
Here are the major tenets of our most recent Strategic Plan.
Toward the Learning-Centered Community
We strive to develop the practice of a learning-centered institution with high-impact pedagogies. To meet this goal, we are centering on systematic assessment and the purposeful, careful, and deliberate use of the results of those assessments.
Toward Institutional Effectiveness
We are always looking for ways to become a more effective and efficient organization. When things run smoothly for administrators, they run smoothly for students, faculty, and staff. We want to foster a culture of transparency, collaboration, civility, and collegiality.
Toward a Sustainable Community
The time is now to act in meaningful ways that consider our impact on the planet. We at Purchase are called to ensure fiscal, academic, and environmental sustainability.
Toward a Greater Purchase
Ultimately, it is our people who make Purchase College what it is—from the world-class faculty to our inimitable student body—and we are committed to enhancing connections within our community and beyond.
