Strategic Plan

At the heart of our vision for the future is a singular goal: to give our students so much more than a degree.

 The value of the liberal arts lies beyond the trade skills our students can learn in a classroom. Instead, we equip our students with unique methods of thinking that will carry them through their entire careers, both personally and professionally. 


TCU's Vision in Action: Lead On


Goal One: Strengthen Academic Programs & Reputation

AddRan College measures its academic strength by the quality of its academic programs, faculty research and creative activity, and the success students derived from our collective belief in, and practice of, the Teacher-Scholar model.


Goal Two: Strengthen Endowment

By increasing endowed programs and the number of endowed chairs and professors AddRan College seeks to sustain and enhance the TCU Endowment assets while elevating our academic profile and reputation.


Goal Three: Strengthen TCU Experience and Campus Culture

AddRan College maintains a strong relationship to the Fort Worth community and beyond through public lectures and symposiums in which faculty, students, staff and area residents come together.


Goal Four: Strengthen Workforce

Diverse workforces and student bodies create successful, creative and profitable environments according to a wide array of recent research. AddRan College is a campus leader in its efforts to strengthen workforce diversity and transform the current racial and gender climate through academic programs, co-curricular programming, course offerings, hiring, and professional development.
