MCLA Strategic Plan

Moving Forward, Building on Excellence

MCLA's Strategic Plan offers tremendous opportunities to keep moving MCLA forward.

The strategic plan provides a framework for the accomplishments, achievements, and progress realized through the work of the College faculty and staff, alumni, community members, and other stakeholders.

Through the planning process every division annually develops, implements, and evolves action plans to support MCLA's strategic goals:

  • Excellence in Teaching and Learning: Engage students through a dynamic and transformative liberal arts education that encourages excellence, innovation, and student success in co-curricular programs.


  • Supportive and Inclusive Community: Embrace and sustain the diverse communities that support MCLA's educational, cultural, and social environment.


  • Responsive and Intentional Stewardship: Secure MCLA's future through the innovative, strategic, and informed development of our human, ecological, and financial resources.


  • Public Purpose and Engagement: Promote and ensure access to MCLA's programs and resources and prepare students for personal and professional success over a lifetime of learning and citizenship.
