Transforming Our Future: Implementing Change in an Era of Innovation

Welcome to Shepherd University’s webpage dedicated to providing timely updates on our strategic plan implementation. We are in an era of historic change in higher education and with that change comes unparalleled opportunities. Our number one goal is to attain financial stability to provide a world-class liberal arts education for the next generation of professional leaders and model citizens, and to serve as an educational resource for the community.

My charge to the Strategic Planning Committee was to create a five-year strategic plan that would inform campus decision-making and fundraising priorities, resulting in a strong financial position. The plan also serves as a strategic roadmap with implementation guidelines. Now that the Strategic Plan has been formally approved by the Shepherd University Board of Governors, implementation teams are in the process of ensuring that the four goals and related strategies will be fulfilled within the defined timeframe. Thank you for being part of Shepherd and believing in the possibilities that will shape our future. Together, we can address our challenges and maybe have a little fun along the way!

With best wishes and great expectations,
Mary J.C. Hendrix
