Wesley College Seeks Input for Future Growth


Wesley College’s recent selection as one of the top 100 universities and colleges in the country by TheBestSchools.org showcases the value of a well-developed strategic plan. Wesley’s five-year plan (2009 – 2014) just wrapped up with many goals realized including a focus on increasing safety and the environment contributed to planning and execution of new plazas.  Increased retention and program growth will be realized through better facilities—like the new Health Science Building and renovated science and psychology labs to promote undergraduate research.  An innovative new core curriculum will attract and help retain first year students.

With those successes and many others realized, Wesley is entering the preliminary stages of a long-term strategic planning process and is looking for input from the Dover community to help it chart the College’s future. 

“As we look toward the future, we hope to strengthen our state and local partnerships and add a vibrant presence to the economic, social and cultural life of Delaware,” said Wesley President Dr. William N. Johnston.

To this end, the College is surveying the opinions of its neighbors to determine what the community thinks about Wesley now and what it would like to see from the institution in the future. Within the next several weeks, surveys will be available at local schools, libraries, and businesses and will be distributed to various civic, religious and government organizations or click here and enter the passcode wesleycollege to share your thoughts.
