Background Reading

The Strategic Planning Committee spent much of Fall 2010 collecting and reading a vast amount of background material in an effort to understand the state of the College, our relative place among our peers, and what the future might bring not only for Mount Holyoke but for higher education in general.

We invite the Mount Holyoke community to read along with the Strategic Planning Committee and welcome suggestions for additional documents that may inform the strategic planning process.  Contact us at
