A Message from President Crimmin
“Planning ahead is critical to our continued success. The world is rapidly changing, and it is imperative that institutions of higher education adapt with agility into the future and are capable of rising to new challenges.”
In May 2017, I asked the Becker College community to help the College create a formal institutional strategic plan. Through open, engaging meetings with faculty, staff, and students, our community worked together to help shape a new vision and mission for the College that will drive Becker’s institutional strategic plan. The process of developing our strategic plan embraced transparency by soliciting appropriate input from members of the community: extensive on-campus discussion among faculty, staff, and students, as well as valuable input from trustees and alumni.
Our teams worked tirelessly on this initiative, and I am pleased to present the result of that effort: “Focused on the Future: The Becker College Three-Year Strategic Plan, 2019-2021.”
We start from a position of strength. With careful and thoughtful planning and a dedicated faculty and staff, Becker College has experienced transformational change in academic programs and student engagement, and has garnered national and international recognition. This Plan outlines how we expect to fulfill our mission, advance towards our vision, maximize our resources, guide our decision-making and actions, and make Becker College even stronger. The initiatives detailed in this Plan underscore three major goals:
- Improve Academic & Student Success
- Strengthen Enrollment
- Enhance Brand, Culture & Resource Development
I am proud of the Plan our community created, and look forward to the results of our collective work.
Nancy P. Crimmin, Ed.D.
