We understand this idea is bold, ambitious, and aggressive. We understand the shape of this vision is not for every college or university. We understand it will take every bit of talent and commitment our team possesses. But we have a plan. Our standards are set, and our strategies are in place. We build on some extraordinary accomplishments of our team. And most of all we are guided by a clear vision.
There is no room for diffidence here. This is not a time to be tentative. This blueprint requires a lot of thinking and strategizing and talking as we make our way through the years ahead. This bold plan requires a talented, committed team of faculty, staff, students, trustees, alumni, and partners, all locking arms. It requires a great deal of work and a commitment to measure the results and continue to improve.
But Seattle Pacific University is moving down this clear and certain path with all of the energy we can muster. What an exciting venture! What possibilities! As the great biblical story encourages us: We are running right at the giants. May God go with us.
