"We have forgotten how to be good guests, how to walk lightly on the earth as its other creatures do."
-- Barbara Ward
Mission Statement: Several questions guided the deliberations of the Vision Task Force. The most fundamental was the one raised by Dale Wartluft: “Why would I, as a parent, send my child to a small, very expensive school in a rural, remote location in southern Ohio, when I have literally hundreds of more attractive and close-by alternatives?” Stated another way, the question is: “What is Marietta College’s niche, and why is it so attractive that it has gained strength in the highly competitive higher education marketplace?” As we grappled with these questions, it became clear that the primary focus of the vision needed to be on the educational experience Marietta College offers students, and that other very important aspects of the vision support, result from, or describe that experience.
