The World is Changing Fast.
Higher education must change swiftly, too, if we want to continue to help respond to the economic and social challenges that our communities, nation and world face.
At Olivet College, we recognize that we must respond to the changing world in ways that honor our founders’ vision while arming students with knowledge, skills and character that prepare them for a future for which we cannot truly plan. Olivet College can accomplish this by reimagining our culture of education.
“Vision for a Prosperous Future” builds on Olivet’s strengths and successes in many areas, including the focus on a relationship-based learning and living community, individual and social responsibility, and Liberal Arts Knowledge. These deeply-rooted strengths of the College will help us to engage beyond our hill into new directions.
Now more than ever, we must prepare students to be equipped with the knowledge and character to navigate an uncertain world and positively influence the communities where they live and work.
As you’ll read below and on the following pages, “Vision for a Prosperous Future” is ambitious and bold. So is Olivet College.
