Clark-Dr-DavidVanguard University’s mission is to equip each student for a Spirit-empowered life of Christ-centered leadership and service. To fulfill that mission, Vanguard is undertaking a university strategic planning process that will enable us to discern God’s vision for us for the next five to ten years and elaborate specific plans for fulfilling that vision.

The process we are undertaking is described in this document and includes our Board of Trustees, faculty, staff, students, community members, and alumni. We will be working together to articulate this vision, set strategic priorities, and establish specific goals that will guide our work together.

We’d love to have your input! Given Vanguard’s mission and given the needs of our region and our world, what would you envision for Vanguard’s future? We invite you to join us in a prayerful process of discernment. Click this link to find a feedback page where you can provide input on one of the eight key themes under consideration during this planning process. You’ll find a place to identify your connection to Vanguard and your insights will be shared with the appropriate thematic workgroup chair.

We believe God has great things in store for Vanguard University!
