A letter from President Slabach

President Slabach shares his thoughts on Texas Wesleyan's next strategic plan, as written in the Spring 2021 issue of Wesleyan magazine.

Dear Alumni and Friends,

As we see the dawn of a new decade, I am reminded of the words of Proverbs 29:18, "Where there is no vision, the people perish."

What we do defines who we are, and Texas Wesleyan is committed to fostering the better world that those who went before us saw on the road ahead. The collective work of our 2020 Vision brought us to this point. Our Engage 2025 strategic plan will continue that work.

We developed this plan from extensive listening sessions and participation with people across the entire Texas Wesleyan community. It is our shared vision for the future, and we are united in it.

Our 2025 Engage strategic plan centers around three key areas:

  • An intellectual curiosity that drives lifelong learning in our students.
  • Lasting and meaningful community connections that deepen with time.
  • Leadership skills rooted in real-world scenarios.

We have seen these ideas revitalize our campus and neighborhood. They are rooted in what we do.

Central to that vision is our dedication to diversity and inclusion. Texas Wesleyan is a place where students can connect with their community without fear of bias or harm.

My prayer is that this transformative power of wisdom and learning will help us in our efforts to break down the walls that separate us, work through our differences of opinion and commit ourselves to the rule of law and justice. Texas Wesleyan University will continue to provide a space for calm and reason for all our students, faculty and staff.

May God bless you and may God bless Texas Wesleyan.
