Colby-Sawyer Strategic Plan

Explore. Connect. Make a Difference.

CSC’s purpose is to discover our potential to build a better world.


A collaborative regional leader in innovative pedagogy and college-of-choice for students and employees who make meaningful contributions to their professions and communities and promote personal wellbeing, social justice, economic stability, and ecological balance.


To offer undergraduate and graduate educational programs based in the liberal arts and health, social, and natural sciences, with a focus on vocational exploration and experiential learning, which prepare students to thrive in, and make a positive impact upon a dynamic, diverse, and interdependent world. Engaged robust partnerships will support students’ academic, intellectual, personal and professional growth, align with workforce development needs, and enhance individual and community well-being and resilience.

The plan was approved by the Board of Trustees in Oct. 2021.
