The 2017 Strategic Plan Progress Report illustrates Trinity’s considerable movement toward meeting the goals of our ten-year plan, Trinity Tomorrow. After four years of implementation, many components of this ambitious strategic plan are already embedded in the transformational experience we offer our students. The plan’s core values and key features embody Trinity’s highest ideals while providing an exciting, carefully designed path for our future.
This year’s Progress Report offers a visual snapshot of our success so far and indicates areas that will draw our focus and attention in the coming year. Through a combination of metrics, benchmarks, and narratives, you can see how our accomplishments build on Trinity’s considerable strengths and positively impact the lives of our students.
Highlights of initiatives that moved toward completion in 2016-17 include:
As president, I am committed to our success. I am genuinely excited about the goals of Trinity Tomorrow to make a true difference for the University and our students, and because it is forward thinking in its design.
The goal of the plan is to inspire learning, in the deepest sense that aligns with the values that have sustained Trinity University since its founding and drive us to an impactful future. Since its inception, Trinity faculty and staff have invested tremendous energy in realizing the plan. My goal is to keep this momentum going and facilitate an environment where we work together to fulfill our mission of providing a transformational liberal arts and sciences experience.
Trinity’s vision is ambitious: Redefine liberal arts for the 21st century. We are making progress and charting the next steps in this journey.
The Trinity Tomorrow strategic plan describes where we want Trinity University to be by 2023 and how we propose getting there. The plan builds on the many strengths of Trinity and addresses the limitations that make it difficult for the University to achieve its full potential. Our task is sharpening our institutional identity within the familiar framework of our mission, values, and aspirations.
