President's Message

As we look back over the past few years and the accomplishments achieved under our 2011-2014 Strategic Map, we celebrate a dynamic journey of discovery—of building on our strengths, taking risks, moving quickly and shouting our story from the rooftops. Today, we emerge a stronger university that has focused on innovation to drive Stetson University from Success to Significance.

The momentum we have gained continues to push us ever forward. Just as the Stetson University community wrapped up one strategic plan, we drew a breath and began formulating the next, looking outward and inward, deliberating on the exciting opportunities before us.

We have identified our central challenge over the coming years to be this: Establish Stetson as a University of Choice for Innovative Approaches to Tackling Complex Challenges. Our strategic initiatives will set us on the path to accomplish this task.

What will Stetson University look like in the next decade as we rise to meet this challenge?

Our vision is to build on our core values and tradition of academic rigor and professional excellence to take success to significance to a new level. Stetson University will be known for success in preparing and inspiring high-achieving students to be difference-makers. Our students and alumni will excel as ethical professionals and responsible citizens, and demonstrate leadership as engaged global citizens tackling complex challenges and bringing about real-world change. They will work to develop sustainable solutions that create a more just and healthy society.

Together, we are One Stetson, and this is our future.

Wendy B. Libby, Ph.D.
