Antioch College embarked on a long-range strategic planning process during the 2011–2012 academic year. The goal was to develop and implement an inclusive planning process that would clarify institutional priorities and drive programmatic and financial decision-making throughout all units of the College. The process began with deep thought and spirited discussion about who we are, what we value, and what we want to become. From that core came six broad goals through which the mission, vision, and learning outcomes will be realized over the next eight years. Moving forward, goal teams comprised of students, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees, and community members will formulate specific action plans to support each goal. Priority action items will be identified each year and will inform budget, assessment, and reporting activities.
The Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Planning will be releasing goal team membership lists, detailed action steps, and progress reports complementing each group of goals over the coming months. Return to this web page for further updates.
The mission of Antioch College is to provide a rigorous liberal arts education on the belief that scholarship and life experience are strengthened when linked, that diversity in all its manifestations is a fundamental component of excellence in education, and that authentic social and community engagement is vital for those who strive to win victories for humanity.
Antioch College will be the place where new and better ways of living are discovered as a result of meaningful engagement with the world through intentional linkages between classroom and experiential education.
Antioch College’s mission will only be served if our graduates possess the knowledge and skills that enable them to win victories for humanity. Curricular, experiential education, community, and supporting elements are all designed to further learning in these areas:
