Dear Barton Community,
Through the successful implementation of the BartonBold Strategic Plan, the College experienced exponential growth and vibrancy during the past five years. Now, it’s important that we take time to recognize these achievements and note the milestones achieved thus far.
These achievements exemplify the dedication of our students, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees, and stakeholders who contributed to making 2016-21 our most prolific years to date. Your steadfast commitment has ignited the “light of life,” that we celebrate in our college motto Habebunt Lumen Vitae.
At Barton, we also recognize the importance of partnering with our stakeholders to keep higher education accessible to all. Accessibility to education translates into expansion, growth, innovation, and resourcefulness.
By staying true to our mission, vision, and core values, by further developing our distinctive identity, by embracing radical innovation that will be meaningful for our students, and by inspiring our stakeholders through purposeful partnerships, we will continue the journey BartonBold and Connected.
Thank you for your hard work and support.
Dr. Douglas N. Searcy
President, Barton College
