Wartburg College Civic Action Plan
Our Civic Action Plan will assist Wartburg College in achieving our 21st Century Mission – embracing our immigrant experience, and heritage by challenging and nurturing students for lives of leadership and service as a spirited expression of their faith and learning.
Our new endeavor – Focus on the Future – will help frame our action plan over the next 3-5 years. Involving constituents and friends in planning has strengthened Wartburg College many times throughout its history. Collective wisdom has ensured the College’s improvement, whether through Design for Tomorrow and Decade of Opportunity in the 1970s and 1990s, or through Commission Wartburg and Commission on Mission in the 21st Century.
Commission on Mission produced Wartburg’s 2010-2020 strategic plan – Living our Learning, Claiming our Calling, Transforming Tomorrow – which laid the foundation for Wartburg’s successful Transforming Tomorrow campaign, which in turn helped us achieve many of the goals established in the plan.
At its fall meeting, the College’s Board of Regents launched a new initiative – Focus on the Future – to engage constituents in planning for this decade’s final years.
Focus on the Future comprises seven task forces, each of which will examine a specific topic that our campaign has identified as holding promise. Co-chaired by a member of our faculty or staff and an external constituent, each task force will include both employees of the College and folks drawn from the outside who can offer insights and perspective.
