Areas of Focus

As of July 2020, the Strategic Planning Steering Committee has defined the following as the primary expected strategic outcomes of its work; these areas of focus were approved both by the Board of Trustees and the President's Cabinet.

The steering committee is currently working to determine specific metrics that will help us measure our progress toward success in these areas.

Enrollment

Increase the total Wells enrollment to a minimum of 500 students by increasing the number of new students as well as improving upper-class student retention

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Increase faculty and staff diversity to reflect the Wells student community, and ensure equitable practices and policies are implemented

Financial

Be financially stable and sustainable; be cash-positive and provide positive operating net income for sustainable funds to grow and maintain the College

Value

Be recognized regionally for the advantages of the Wells location in Aurora, N.Y. and our partnerships and teaching excellence that offer our students differentiated learning and career opportunities

Our mission is for every student to think critically, reason wisely and act humanely as they cultivate meaningful lives. On our beautiful lakeside campus, students gain the knowledge, skills and experience to create their own unique path.
