This semester, the Marymount community has been engaged in a visioning process to help define our University’s future direction. This process involves creative thinking, strategic decision-making, and the setting of goals that are ambitious yet obtainable. The end result will be a concise statement that describes the Marymount University that we envision; this vision statement will form the foundation for our future strategic planning.
I have been grateful for the enthusiastic participation of the Marymount community in this effort. We held a series of group discussions that gave students, faculty, staff, and alumni opportunities to share their thoughts and ideas. In addition, members of the MU community have provided feedback through this website. Although the group discussion sessions have now concluded, it is not too late to share your thoughts; just click the “Get Involved!” button at the right to access the online survey.
I believe that this process will result in a vision statement that will guide, inspire, and energize the Marymount community as we move forward together. Thank you for your continued participation and support.
