Strategic Plan


Meredith Forever, approved in October 2012, is the strategic plan for the future of Meredith College.

The goals of this plan are fundamental to the well-being of the College, and they build on the strengths Meredith already possesses: educational excellence and relevance, a reputation for quality, a collaborative and supportive environment, a beautiful campus and culture that support learning, and the power to endure.

This strategic plan is a rolling, three-year plan, meaning that each year another set of action items, accountability and resources will be built into the plan. At the heart of the plan are our ongoing commitments to six pillars:

  • educational excellence
  • financial strength
  • optimal enrollment
  • IT/infrastructure
  • enhanced visibility
  • quality of life for Meredith faculty, staff, and students


Ultimately, we are a community – one that values shared governance, shared responsibility, shared respect, and shared rewards. Because of this, the strategic planning process has been highly inclusive and transparent, with opportunities for feedback from the entire Meredith community, including faculty, staff, students, trustees, alumnae, and community partners.

Three-Year Highlights
In three years, Meredith has made tremendous strides and become even stronger. Results from the first three years include raising more than $50 million in the silent phase of Beyond Strong | The Campaign for Meredith, implementing new academic programs, and capturing the College's first-ever USA South Women's President's Cup.
