Building a bold and bright future
In the fall of 2010, Merrimack College embarked upon a collaborative process of bringing together campus influencers and key leaders of various institutional stakeholder groups to discuss the future of the College, its aspirations, and opportunities. The result of this nine-month effort a strategy was developed with the simple goal of shaping a vision for the future of Merrimack College and providing an overarching blueprint for achieving its success. The plan is called Advancing Merrimack in the 21st Century: The Agenda for Distinction.
From the Agenda for Distinction, is a Long Range Plan that details the College’s focus in terms of growth and success. It provides the roadmap for which the College community holistically and individually can hone its efforts and align its work towards our competitive goal of achieving recognition among the top 30 US News Regional Universities North and enrolling 3,000 undergraduates by 2021.
Important initiatives are underway to achieve our 10-year vision of becoming nationally recognized as a highly distinctive institution, dedicated to preparing students for productive, responsible citizenship in the increasingly complex, competitive, and diverse world of the 21st century.
This site celebrates Merrimack’s momentum and highlights our Agenda for Distinction successes. It provides information on how to join us in our ascent, support our efforts, monitor our progress and invest in our vision.
The links found on this page offer more information about the exciting strategic investments the College and its partners are making that illustrate our commitment to serving our students, enhancing our academic enterprise, beneficially impacting our local, regional and international community, and strengthening the value of a Merrimack degree.
