Strategic Objectives

Within the strategic plan's five objectives are specific initiatives determined to be most appropriate for Wells to pursue over the next four years. In the strategic financial plan, each initiative is assigned to the appropriate Cabinet officer responsible for implementation, thus creating an accountability framework.

The strategic objectives and initiatives are:


Ensure that the Wells College educational experience offers unmatched value for career success, lifelong learning, and a brighter future for all


Invest in enrollment enhancement initiatives to increase first-year and transfer enrollment and overall student retention


Embody a culture of belonging that empowers all to thrive


Build and steward our financial and data resources to deliver positive operating margins


Engage and leverage the Wells alumnae/alumni network to increase investment in our students, their future and Wells College


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.
