As president, Kim Cassidy has made a commitment to four overarching priorities for Bryn Mawr:
- Investing in the College’s traditions of academic excellence and innovation through reinforcing the College commitment to the liberal arts and the scholar-teacher model and supporting faculty innovation
- Fostering belonging, well-being, and community to create an experience of inclusion and an environment in which students find joy in learning
- Increasing resources for financial aid and other forms of student support
- Providing national leadership among liberal arts colleges in advancing digital initiatives that complement the strengths of a residential liberal arts education
President Cassidy published Excellence in Action: the Vision for Bryn Mawr’s Undergraduate College in 2017 as a framework for advancing these priorities, which have been supported by the overwhelming success of Defy Expectation, a campaign ending in 2021 that raised more than $300 million.
Building on this progress is the goal of a new strategic planning process engaging students, faculty, staff, and trustees that was launched by President Cassidy in fall 2022.
