Our Strategic Plan:

The College has embarked on a strategic planning process—engaging faculty, staff, and students—to create a plan that will guide the institution for the next three years. 

Social Impact Investing:

In an age where students on more than 200 campuses are petitioning their school’s trustees to invest in a more environmentally and socially conscious way, including going “fossil-fuel-free,” the proactive investment policy adoption from Becker is surprisingly unique. In 2015, the Board of Trustees mandated a 100% social impact goal for the College’s endowment. The journey to a 100% social impact investment goal was completed on June 30, 2017. Becker has taken a proactive step to becoming one of the first institutions of higher education to invest its full endowment toward positively impacting social, environmental, and economic sectors.
