Seaver 2030: Divine Pursuit

Strategic Plan for Seaver College

In 1998, the framers of the College’s then-strategic plan adopted the mission of Seaver College. That mission remains as vibrant and resonant today as it did 22 years ago. Much as the framers did then, in noting that we never rise higher than our dreams or stumble accidentally into greatness, we provide this strategic plan to illuminate a path forward for Seaver College as we endeavor to realize God’s plan for our community in the world.

About the University

Strategic Guidance and Vision

Residing at the core of the 2030 Seaver College Strategic Plan are six values that have shaped the College since its founding. These values are central to the identity of Seaver College. They are the cornerstone of our work; they frame our thinking, guide our actions, shape our cultivation of community, and inform our engagement with the world.

The success of the College is inexorably linked to the success of the members and dependent upon their ability to thrive as a community with a deep and abiding support of mission.

Distinctive Identity

The strategic plan and preceding themes culminate in a distinctive identity for Seaver College, one where academic excellence and Christian faith are inextricably entwined. This distinctive identity is shaped and sustained by a thriving community where each individual is lifted up, each voice is heard and respected, and each member supports and inspires the other.
