After a six-month process that involved seven town meetings on campus, discussions among our Board of Trustees, and a weekend-long retreat with faculty, staff, students, Trustees, Lasell Village Residents, and neighbors, we have produced a high-level strategic plan that will ground our vision for what we will accomplish over the next five years.

We look forward to making great strides in the years to come, thanks to the consensus reached throughout this process. My deepest thanks to all who took part in this vital endeavor.
