Strategy Statement

To grow our student body to 500, supported by an endowment of $20,000,000, and to strengthen and diversify our learning community through a commitment to institutional excellence, sustainability, affordability, and creativity, ensuring that each student can learn how to be a working artist for life and make communities better. Our endeavor will be guided by the philosophy that we are all educators and made possible by 21st century best practices in teaching, learning, human resources, environmental responsibility, and operations.

Preamble to the Plan

This plan is conceived as a living document involving all members of the MECA community: faculty, staff, students, trustees, and alumni. The professional senior leadership team will revisit the plan at least semiannually, determine its relevance to changes in the environment and the needs of the College, report its findings to the Board of Trustees and MECA employees, and make adjustments as needed.

Approved by the Board of Trustees on April 15, 2015.
