In his address to faculty, staff and board members at Ashland University’s recent all-institutional meeting, Ashland President Carlos Campo focused on the school's strategic plan entitled Ashland Rising.

“We are looking to the future and our strategic plan, which was not in place a year ago, is in place now and provides us with a road map for the future,” Campo said. “And I think that sentiment of Ashland Rising we want to make, of course, more than just a motto, we want it to be something that is reflective of our attitudes and about our vision for where we are headed as an institution. The 138-year-old tradition that I referenced earlier is the bedrock of who we are as an institution.”

The strategic plan outlines five key pillars: Academic Excellence, the campus’ Unique Christian Identity, Exemplary Fiscal Stewardship, Campus Environment and Community Engagement. The day’s events also featured awards for employees who have been with the school for over 25 years and introductions for the university’s 56 new employees.

“We promise a transforming educational experience guided by our Christian heritage – a transformative experience that will lead to graduates who will work, serve and lead with integrity,” Campo said. “That’s our promise. That’s our mission. It’s a promise that is inspirational and aspirational,” he said.
