Strategic Plan

Hope College has adopted six aspirational goals for a ten-year strategic plan that will enable the college to fulfill its mission, guide its priorities and decision making, and gain in national and international stature as both a premier liberal arts college and a leader in Christ-centered higher education.

These priorities will focus our energies on sharpening the distinguishing characteristics of our academic program; supporting our students, staff and faculty in the development of their faith; strengthening our institutional engagement with global issues and organizations; becoming a community in which all members are able to flourish; elevating our national and international reputation; and ensuring that Hope provides students and their families with the best value among the best liberal arts colleges in America.

As we turn our attention to developing the measurable objectives and key performance indicators that will allow us to achieve the goals and through which we will measure our progress, we are grateful for the hundreds of people who have participated in the strategic planning process over the last year. It has been a collective effort between the Board of Trustees, college administrators, faculty, students, alumni, and other friends of the college.
