Five Core Values

The Providence College strategic plan is built upon five core values.  These pillars each represent a critical component of the institution’s approach to achieving its strategic priorities over the next several years.  With built-in strategies and associated metrics, the plan provides both clarity and accountability in pursuit of its overarching goals.





Rev. Brian J. Shanley, O.P.,'80, Providence College President: “Now we have (our plan) in sharp focus.’” (1:19)


Hugh F. Lena, Providence College Provost and Senior Vice President: “The strategic plan is very challenging and yet…we should expect nothing less from ourselves.” (:47)
