Concordia Leads: The Plan for 2030
A framework for the plan was introduced at the State of the College in Fall 2018 by Concordia’s president and chair of the Board of Regents. What followed was extensive participation by the campus community through listening sessions and alumni/ae participated through questionnaires.
Listening led to formulating the driving vision for the plan and its four main goals:
Transformational Learning: Concordia will offer a transformative education that shapes 21st-century learners ready to address complex challenges in their professional, public, and personal lives with agility, imagination, and moral insight.
Excellence Through Diversity: Concordia will affirm a diversity of identities, experiences, and perspectives as a condition of institutional excellence, leading all who study and work here to honor difference with respectful understanding and to practice courageous citizenship for the common good.
Wholeness and Health of Community: Concordia will cultivate the growth and well-being of students, faculty, and staff; demonstrate resilience in response to change; and practice transformational leadership to work collectively for the greater good of neighbors and the planet.
Financial Foundation: Concordia will pursue entrepreneurial strategies to raise revenue, attract investment, streamline operations, and raise both institutional visibility and enrollment market share. This endeavor will engage the entire college community in creating, through its choices and actions, a Concordia that learns and leads for the sake of the world.
We learn, we lead, for the sake of the world. We all worked to create the plan; now we will work together to realize its vision and achieve its goals. The college cabinet has been commissioned to engage us in the plan’s fulfillment as best matches our particular gifts and our common devotion to mission.
