PC200 Strategic Plan – Vision & Goals


Providence College will be a nationally recognized Catholic, residential, undergraduate-focused, higher-education institution distinguished for leveraging the interconnections among the humanities, fine arts, social sciences, natural sciences (i.e., the liberal arts), and professional courses of study, and integrating experiential learning opportunities to prepare its students to live meaningful personal and professional lives in an increasingly global society.

Goal 1

A Distinctive Educational Experience

In the 800-year-old Dominican tradition of critical inquiry, we will provide our students with a life-changing experience that helps them to discover the harmony of faith and reason and that allows them to flourish intellectually, personally, and professionally. More

Goal 2

A Model of Love, Inclusivity, and Equity in a Diverse Community

Inspired by Catholic teaching and St. Dominic’s wide embrace of all people, our community will model the love, empathy, and respect which are at the heart of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. A diverse body of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and trustees will work together to advance the mission of the College. More

Goal 3

A Sustainable Institution with Growing National Visibility and Reputation

To steward Providence College’s resources for the next 100 years, we will enhance collaboration and create structures within and across academic and functional areas to support an organizational culture and operating model that is mission-driven, creative and nimble, and committed to fiscal responsibility and enhancing reputation.
