Smith 2035 Vision Statement

In 2022, members of the Smith community undertook an exercise to establish and articulate an overall institutional direction and map a path forward within a flexible framework of understanding and preparing for the probable future. Smith 2035 identifies what we should be thinking about, paying attention to, and opening our minds and hearts to consider as we look forward, toward the horizon. Smith 2035 forms a framework for pondering how the college’s future will unfold—or, rather, how Smith will unfold its future—in relation to trends in society, culture, and higher education, and to the known and emerging challenges facing our unstable world.
