Re-imagining a Liberal Arts Education

Over the past several months, President Carol T. Christ led a series of more than 50 small group discussions with faculty, students, staff, alumnae, and trustees. Reflecting on these discussions, the Committee on Mission and Priorities has developed eight strategic directions to guide the next phase of our planning effort. The eight strategic directions all engage us in re-imagining the liberal arts. As we shift our attention from identifying critical areas of focus to crafting specific strategies to pursue, the committee urges the Smith community to think creatively about how best to make important new connections in at least three areas: among Smith constituencies, between the curriculum and the co-curriculum, and between the college and the cultures in which it is located.
