Dear Friend:

Vision 2020 – Growing with Excellence is the motto we have adopted to reflect our transformative journey from a good university to a great one. Vision 2020 is an initiative to grow Washington Adventist University into a thriving and distinctive institution of higher education, defined by excellence in all that we do.

Growing with excellence will require a visionary community that is synchronized and aligned behind a commitment to produce graduates who bring competence and moral leadership to their communities worldwide. Moving forward together will help our institution emerge as a premier private Christian university that engages minds and transforms lives. Together, we will continue to implement best practices under the six institutional pillars of excellence: quality, people, finance, growth, service, and community.

This packet will introduce you to the major projects designed to upgrade and transform the University into an institution that satisfies the needs of 21st century students and faculty. Our current campus has served us well since 1904, but our students continually depend on us to upgrade the infrastructure and the quality of our support services to facilitate their successful transition to the workforce. As part of our mission, Vision 2020 – Growing with Excellence endeavors to surmount the road blocks that impede student success, grow strong relevant academic programs, collaborate with K–12 partners, infuse internships across the curriculum, grow enrollment, increase the use of technology in content delivery, and continually measure our systems for efficiency and effectiveness.

We are seeking your prayers and financial contributions in partnering with us to make Vision 2020 – Growing with Excellence a reality. Our

desired outcomes are to make Christian education sustainable, improve performance outcomes, and make Washington Adventist University an excellent place for employees to work and for students to learn. Please consider an investment in academic scholarships and/or our campus master plan to grow and renovate the physical campus. Join us on the journey to grow with excellence and to embrace a future that benefits our students and faculty.

Thank you for your continued prayers and contributions.
