          战略计划

          “Every W&J graduate will not only be exceptionally well prepared for professional success, but also recognized as a leader committed to the highest standards of ethics and capable of addressing complex challenges facing today’s organizations and society.” – President John C. Knapp, Ph.D.

          This promise is at the heart of the College’s new strategic plan, Juncta Juvant, designed to strengthen the four-year W&J experience by equipping all students with distinctive qualities that are highly valued by today’s leading employers and graduate schools.

          Over a recent 18-month period, the Washington & Jefferson College community worked collaboratively to develop strategies to ensure that the College continues to be at the forefront of liberal arts education at a time of changing demographics, increasing competition for students, and greater public skepticism about the value of higher education. The plan was approved by the 受托人董事会 in October and work is well under way to implement new curricular and cocurricular initiatives.

          The planning process involved study groups, surveys of multiple College constituencies, open campus feedback sessions, an exhaustive self-study, and an extensive market analysis conducted by the Art & Science Group, LLC, a leading research firm serving higher education. The work aimed to significantly enhance and further differentiate the W&J experience at a time when small, residential, undergraduate colleges face a long-term decline in the number of 18-year-olds in America, as well as greater pressures to ensure post-graduate outcomes.

          “Our new strategic direction establishes a comprehensive approach to continuous improvement for greater success in attracting, retaining, and graduating talented students who will be leaders in their careers and communities,” Knapp said. “This plan also recognizes that in order for our students to realize their full potential, we must do more to fully support the success of all members of the W&J community, including our faculty, staff, and alumni.”

          显著的工作已经开始重建校园宿舍包括精美的装修和体育馆,国家的最先进的健身中心,以及一个新的户外圆形剧场。另外,学院已通过决策更具参与决策过程,大大提高了市场营销和通信,包括一个新的网站。

          这些和其他举措都基于三个基本承诺:

          我的承诺

          “每个学生都将实现专业准备和一个充实的生活,通过创新的四年学习经验,优秀教材,提供咨询和指导全面,道德领导力和发展引导的准备。”

          教师在工作中制定课程的做法,以确保每一个学生的个性化学习计划提供的专业准备和广泛的智力挑战的平衡。另一种跨职能的团队正在开发一个计划,以专业的学术咨询/职业生涯规划开始,在入学,一直持续到毕业整合。

          领导和道德一个新的中心将作为一个跨学科计划在像解决冲突,合作解决问题,和职业道德,在其他地区提供所有四个年的领导发展学生的枢纽。

          The College is also exploring new opportunities to claim the advantages of Pittsburgh for our students. These could include strategic partnerships and other ways to enhance W&J’s presence in the city to support internships, career development, alumni engagement, and the academic program.

          II承诺

          “我们将培养和培育活动 社区成员参与决策,以保证学院的成功“。

          战略规划过程是参与决策的教师,员工,学生,校友和受托人的高度协作的方法。例如,超过六个小组委员会涉及90名志愿者研究的问题和产生的白皮书。通过学习在一起,并考虑了广泛的思想和观点,社区学院成为未来的重点更好地了解和发展的共识。

          新举措正在设计继续ESTA方式来共同治理。这方面的一个例子是大学全面预算委员会对资源的分配提供透明度和知情的输入。 ESTA委员会成员包括教师,管理人员,职员和学生。

          三承诺

          “我们将培育扶持,多元文化,社会的所有成员都重视,列入,并能充分发挥其潜力。”

          We recognize that we must strive to become a more welcoming and visibly diverse community every year, increasingly reflecting the demographics of the region and nation. The College recently welcomed a new class of freshmen comprising more racial and ethnic diversity than ever before. This is not surprising since the under-18 population in America is now a majority-minority population, where members of traditionally under-represented groups outnumber the historically Caucasian majority. The diversity of the college-going population will continue to increase year after year, and new efforts are planned to ensure that W&J is prepared to serve all population groups equally well.

          Ensuring the success of our students also means providing greater financial assistance. At a time when the number of first-generation college students is increasing and families are less likely to have college savings, W&J must work to increase endowed resources to support financial aid and scholarships.
