L&AD是F&M’s bold and strategic five-year plan (2022-2027). It is so named to capture not only our 社区’s ambitions for the College, but also, with its ampersand, F&M’s mission, identity, inclusivity, and core values. The plan was created with the input of hundreds of faculty, staff, students, trustees, and alumni, and is designed to advance the College and secure its position, in perpetuity, among the finest liberal arts institutions in the country.

Together, by leveraging excellence and accelerating discovery, we will achieve five 主要目标:

    1. Revitalize our curriculum to respond to and guide students’ evolving needs, goals, and interests.
    2. Empower students to engage in an inclusive and joyful 社区.
    3. Advance our aspirations through the highest and best use of all our resources.
    4. Center diversity, equity and inclusion as institutional values.
    5. Ignite a strong culture of philanthropy, service and rewarding engagement.

可行性: We must revise our financial model by promoting innovation and securing institutional sustainability.

Visibility: We must enhance and explain the value of an F&M education to inspire potential students and families, alumni, donors, and other partners to engage with F&M and the opportunities we offer for the future. 

活力: We must better and more consistently engage all members of our 社区 by nurturing their sense of belonging and living the College’s values of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility

“F&M’s strategic plan creates a pathway to sustainable excellence. Every goal speaks to both increasing institutional sustainability and enhancing our extraordinary learning 社区. F&M will succeed in the 2020s if we put students at the center of our work, respond to student priorities and intentions in a manner consistent with our liberal-arts values, and invest in student and alumni success.”
