Innovate

Enhance and distinguish the Puget Sound experience

We will build upon our reputation for distinguished teaching and learning to be nationally recognized for providing the most successful integration anywhere of a traditional liberal arts curriculum with innovative interdisciplinary programs, distinctive centers for learning and research, vibrant cocurricular programs, and a campus community that embraces cultural diversity, the challenges of global citizenship, and meaningful partnerships in the region. We will:

  • Develop resources for embracing curricular innovation focused on environmental, international, and civic concerns

  • Create new faculty lines to enhance faculty recruitment and retention, strengthen targeted programs at the intersection of disciplines, and generate opportunities for faculty research and student mentoring across disciplines

  • Strengthen and promote academic achievements and partnerships in the arts and music, education, health sciences, and business and leadership that engage regional issues for their national significance and recognition
