Leading with Purpose

Priority 4: Connection

Deepen and expand our local, national, and global networks.
Alumnae, parents, and friends of Emma Willard School are a precious resource, with a shared sense of purpose and commitment to uphold the mission and values of the school. Our community’s strength lies in the relationships we develop, providing global perspectives and the awareness necessary to thrive in a diverse and interconnected world. Our own connections with each other lift our lives in immeasurable ways. Enhancing these relationships will keep our school vibrant, relevant, and distinctive.

By communicating and amplifying the unique attributes of our programs, we can expand our reach in attracting future generations of students who will benefit from an Emma Willard education.

We will:
  • BOLSTER our position in the marketplace by articulating who we are with authenticity and clarity, with help from expert partners in market research and communications.
  • STRENGTHEN the alumnae experience through cross-generational, multicultural, and purposeful connections and opportunities to participate, volunteer, and engage with current students and each other.
  • INCREASE a sense of community for parents by working in partnership to enhance the living and learning experience of students.
