Rhodes College aspires to graduate students with a life-long passion for learning, a compassion for others, and the ability to translate academic study and personal concern into effective leadership and action in their communities and the world. We will achieve our aspiration through four strategic imperatives:
1. Student Access
To attract and retain a talented, diverse student body and engage these students in a challenging, inclusive and culturally-broadening college experience.
2. Student Learning
To ensure our faculty and staff have the talent, the time and the resources to inspire and involve our students in meaningful study, research and service.
3. Student Engagement
To enhance student opportunities for learning in Memphis.
4. Student Inspiration
To provide a residential place of learning that inspires integrity and high achievement through its beauty, its emphasis on values, its Presbyterian history, and its heritage as a leader in the liberal arts and sciences.
