2 2 Because We Care...Quality Education for All

3 Because We Care This opening phrase of our strategic plan s theme literally wrote itself. It emerged so clearly to our work group that we all were amazed. It resonated with what I had heard over and over again in my conversations with students, faculty, staff, alumni, board members and college supporters. Everyone cares deeply about Midway College and we have a strong network of supporters. This phrase reinforces that foundation of strong support. Quality Education for All This second phrase reinforces the complexity of our mission and willingness to serve many student populations. Our mission statement provides the world with an understanding of who we serve, what we do, and why we exist. This plan also re-introduces our core values, which are shared with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and reflect the beliefs of our founder, Dr. Lewis L. Pinkerton. These values have shaped us and should continue to drive the culture of our organization. In addition, this plan includes a longer-term view of the institution. The vision statement includes an aspiration for Midway College to become Midway University. That does not mean the institution will have 10,000 students and sponsored research programs. Midway University will be a small, regional university with about 1,700 students by 2017, and it will have a balance of students in the Women s College and in coeducational undergraduate and graduate programs. University status will more aptly capture the diversity of our mission, the breadth of our programs, and our intent to recruit students and faculty internationally. It is with pleasure that I share with you our strategic plan Because We Care Quality Education for All. John P. Marsden, PhD President, Midway College The Strategic Plan for Midway College 3

4 About Midway College Midway College was founded in 1847 by Dr. Lewis L. Pinkerton, a Christian Minister. Originally named the Kentucky Female Orphan School, the purpose of the institution was to educate female orphans to become teachers. Over the years, the institution has evolved and became Pinkerton High School, Midway Junior College, and finally Midway College. Today, Midway College serves three distinct student populations: traditional undergraduate women students in the Women s College; both men and women in accelerated, undergraduate programs; and both men and women in graduate programs. We offer majors in the arts and sciences, teacher education, business, health sciences, equine and sport studies that are delivered in the classroom and online. 4 Because We Care...Quality Education for All

5 Our Strategic Plan Process This plan was developed over the course of several months and adopted by our Board of Trustees in November A campus-wide survey was administered to various constituents in April Discussion sessions were then held with constituents to review the survey findings and complete interactive exercises. A strategic planning work group, consisting of faculty, staff, and administrators, was convened in Fall 2013 to draft a plan based on data collected from the campus strategy sessions. A draft of the plan was presented to the campus in October 2013, and written feedback was solicited through our online portal. Upon its adoption in November 2013 by the Midway College Board of Trustees, action plans and work teams were formed to address each specific tactic of the plan. The College will regularly report its progress to the campus community throughout the coming months and years. The Strategic Plan for Midway College 5

6 Mission Statement Midway College shapes and inspires the lives of students in Kentucky s only college for women and in coeducational undergraduate and graduate programs through a student-centered, global education that leads to rewarding careers and responsible citizenship (adopted November 7, 2013). Vision Statement Midway College will become a regional, vibrant University committed to academic quality and individual achievement. Values Midway College fosters core values shared by the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and reflect the beliefs of our founder, Dr. L.L. Pinkerton. These values include: Valuing the dignity of all people Acting with integrity and responsibility Viewing self as part of the community Living life within a global context Providing service to others Pursuing life-long learning 6 Because We Care...Quality Education for All

7 Strategic Plan Themes The plan consists of three themes as well as goals and tactics associated with each theme. Since Midway College is in the process of addressing many challenges, the first theme includes goals to help us Strengthen our Core in terms of personnel, practices, compliance, finances, marketing, and technology. With a more solid core, the second theme focuses on our need to Enhance the Midway Experience by strengthening learning, co-curricular programming, facilities, campus engagement, and community partnerships. The last theme Grow Strategically is contingent on the two previous themes and is necessary to renew the institution. The plan is short-term in nature and consists of both operational solutions and visionary ideas.
