From the President
RECONCILIATION, CHANGE AND HOPE ARE AT THE HEART OF OUR SHARED VISION FOR DRURY’S FUTURE.
A Drury that is regionally focused, nationally respected, and globally engaged.
A Drury that is student centered, faculty inspired, and community oriented.
A Drury that is financially and environmentally sustainable.
A Drury that is ethnically and culturally diverse, to the enrichment of our campus, our community, and our region.
A Drury community that thinks entrepreneurially, is not afraid to take risks, not afraid to make decisions, not afraid to stray from the herd.
A Drury that prizes her history and traditions, but does not fear change.
A Drury that continues to do what she has done best for so long:
- compete for and attract the best, the brightest, the most motivated students from our community, our region, and niches abroad…
- place them in classrooms with gifted, dynamic, and caring faculty… who will provide them with personal and individual attention and accessibility…
- that they may realize their full potential,and go forth into the world to make it a better place.
Finally, we envision a Drury that will celebrate her 150th birthday in 2023 in the best fiscal, mental, emotional, and moral health ever.
This is a vision for Drury that we can embrace in both heart and mind. This is a vision that honors our past and frames our future.
