    FIERCELY PRACTICAL AND DETERMINEDLY ASPIRATIONAL,

    the Renewing Our Strength Strategic Plan or Maryville College

    was approved by the Board o Directors on Oct. 18, 2012, and

    provides a vision or its bicentennial in 2019. The two major goals

    or this period are achieving fnancial stability and ensuring a vitalacademic program that is relevant in its time and place. These goals

    are undamental to Maryville College continuing to accomplish its

    mission to prepare students or lives o citizenship and leadership.

    Connecting the Maryville College o yesterday, today and tomorrow,

    this plan reafrms the Colleges belie in the liberal arts as a distinctiveand successul approach to education, the Colleges commitment to

    aith and learning, and the Colleges desire to embrace change. One

    guiding purpose in this plan is that, in 2019, Isaac Anderson would
