It is with appreciation that I recognize the efforts of the Institutional Effectiveness governance committee members who developed the initial draft of the College's proposed Vision and Mission statements and Core Values.  As members of the campus community you are invited and encouraged to take a few moments to review the proposed Vision, Mission and Core Values and offer additions, deletions, observations, and/or edits to it. You can do so by emailing your responses to strategicplan@virginiawestern.edu.

The deadline for submitted your response is 12 Noon on Friday, March 27, 2015. Please know that every submission will be reviewed by the Steering Team. However, due to time and document space constraints, any inclusions in the final draft must be limited.
