Strategic Statements Approved by the Board of Trustees

At its October 10, 2009 meeting, The College of Wooster Board of Trustees passed a resolution approving our Strategic Statements in principle, with the understanding that they are likely to undergo further refinement and revision as the planning process moves forward to the next stage: defining the multi-year strategic initiatives to achieve our vision and the resources required to implement them.  The Board also provided insightful comments on the statements; the statements, posted on this site, reflects those comments.
