The Planning for Multiple Tomorrows (PMT) working group is comprised of students, faculty, and staff and tasked to consider a variety of scenarios, and offer new and creative ideas for how the College can continue to achieve its mission and realize its vision.
We have a compelling strategic plan to guide us. We remain committed to our core mission of offering a residential liberal education that emphasizes integration, innovation and reflection for every student. The focus will be on the 2020-21 academic year, but with an understanding that the coming year will have an impact on our longer-term success.
The group’s charge is to recommend to College leadership solutions that will allow Union to:
- Safeguard the health and well-being of our campus community and surrounding communities.
- Complete an academic year while remaining true to the goals articulated in The Power of Union, and our vision of developing every student to lead with wisdom, empathy, and courage now and across multiple tomorrows. This includes the strong preference for resuming and sustaining our residential model.
- Ensure the short- and long-term financial sustainability of the College.
