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
