Building Lifelong Relationships,
Growing Financial Resources,
and Increasing Overall Institutional Effectiveness
To provide for the highest quality of education, to continually improve the utility and physical beauty of the campus and its facilities, and to support the college mission and all strategic priorities, we will adhere to sound business practices and will establish and strengthen lifelong relationships with key constituents (students, parents, friends, alumni, corporations/foundations) to increase and sustain philanthropic support for the College.
What it includes:
Developing a new brand and positioning strategy
Developing a comprehensive program of renovation and new construction
Enhancing the College’s use of information and instructional technologies to support academic and administrative excellence
Using pertinent and objective data to drive decision making and bolster assessment
Enhancing our alumni network through a focused strategy that includes communication, career programming and outreach, and accentuating PC’s Catholic and Dominican identity
Advancing our comprehensive campaign, “Our Moment: The Next Century Campaign for PC”
How we’ll know we’ve succeeded:
When PC has state-of-the-art, well-maintained academic, residential, social, and athletic facilities, a robust network of regional alumni clubs, a culture of continuous improvement, an endowment that enables us to realize our full potential, and when giving back to PC has become second nature for all graduates.
Strategic Financing Plan
The quest to become a nationally recognized, premier, Catholic liberal arts college will require a vast amount of additional resources. Comprehensive financial planning has been developed to support the implementation of the Strategic Plan. Many of the initiatives will not make demands on the College budget and others can be met with existing financial resources. The full implementation of the plan, however, will call for substantial new funding. The plan is, therefore, closely aligned with the “Our Moment” comprehensive campaign and many initiatives will be funded through the College’s philanthropic efforts. Certain other initiatives, including major capital projects, will be partially or fully financed through the prudent issuance of debt.
