The Marketing And Admissions Committee has been leading the work on this. Siobhan said, “During this process, we invited our community to provide input and hosted several community meetings to discuss the mission statement. Nearly 900 individuals completed a survey last March, and others attended our follow-up community meetings."
Siobhan explained the importance of each of the words in the mission statement. “The word, together, emphasizes our sense of community. The word, cultivate, speaks to our work helping students grow and mature into their best selves. The phrase, for the benefit of all, references that our students are prepared, and have the desire, to affect positive change in their worlds.”
It also meets the desired attributes that came out of the survey and community meetings last spring. “The new mission statement is short, memorable, focuses on the individual student and stresses the importance of community,” Siobhan concluded.
