President's Statement

McPherson College continues to move forward boldly with confidence, supported by its dedicated community of employees. As we embark on a historic $500 million challenge match for endowment, our employees are a vital part of our campus success. This past year they provided meaningful input on our latest strategic plan - Community by Design - which sets our focus on the next 10 years with initiatives aimed at building endowment, campus growth, academic innovation, and wellness.

Employee Comment

I appreciate that I feel like I am a part of a team, and we are all working toward the same goal! I enjoy the small feeling of the campus community, as it is easier to get to know others from different departments. Everyone is willing to go the extra mile for our students.
