President Ebersole's Look at the Future

Excelsior’s mission calls for the College to provide access to higher education for individuals who have traditionally been underrepresented at colleges and universities. As we approach Excelsior’s 40th anniversary, we know that creating access is only part of the mission. We increasingly seek to engage our students and propel them toward their goals: academic credentials that change their lives and the society in which they live.

Working toward Access with Success drives our recognition of the landmark anniversary and energizes the entire College and its community of stakeholders. Access to Success frames our goals for the 40th anniversary celebration, infusing public recognition of what we have accomplished, what we have become and where we are going in the years ahead. The Access to Success initiatives create an opportunity for others to join with us in developing the programs and products that secure our graduates’ future.
