Defining the Goal
How do we define “being one of the very best liberal arts colleges?” What indicators
will tell us when we have achieved that goal? What measures should we use to monitor
our progress?
Points of Distinction
Our strategic plan will identify
existing or potential points
of distinction for Lycoming
College. We will undertake a
serious evaluation of probable
success, ascertain investments
that would be required to leverage
those points of distinction, and
determine how we can identify
the needed resources.
National Leadership
We should ask if there are
opportunities for Lycoming to
serve as a national leader in a
particular area of higher education
or as one responding to a pressing national need.
Features that Define the Very Best Liberal Arts Colleges
What are the features that define the very best liberal arts colleges and where does
Lycoming need to progress or change in order to be thought of as a peer?
V I S I O N
Renew and deepen Lycoming
College’s identity as a
national liberal arts college
with the goal of becoming
recognized as one of the very
best liberal arts colleges in
the country.
To achieve this vision, we
must harness our energies
and inspire our supporters
and, most importantly,
exercise our collective
imaginations to build an even
Greater Lycoming.
President Kent Trachte, shown with Luke Klinger ’15 and
Darrian McClellan ’16, invites Lycoming’s alumni and
friends to participate in the college’s strategic planning
process.
