Palm Beach Atlantic University has a significant opportunity to Dream God-sized dreams, expand our campus, and take new ground. And I’m convinced the time to move forward with boldness is now.
Our strategic vision includes an ambitious, multi-phased master plan to improve our campus and maximize available land. This plan is anchored in PBA’s core values and responsive to where our community – and the world – are headed.
To remain competitive and responsive to marketplace changes, we are committed to continuously improving our learning community, expanding relevant program offerings, and building forward-thinking, life-giving spaces. PBA must expand our facilities so that students, industry leaders, and the community can continue to engage, create, and expand the latest innovative ideas in their fields of expertise.
The first initiative of our master plan is focused on elite business education. The impact on Marshall E. Rinker School of Business will be profound. By reinvesting in our campus and our students today, PBA will continue to inspire and launch the next generation of business leaders. God has called these leaders to carry influence within every sphere of society, and it’s our responsibility to provide the foundation and resources they need to accomplish His will.
I’m proud to say we have been good stewards of our resources and facilities, but there is simply no more room! Our business facilities must provide innovative, flexible, and technologically-advanced academic and creative spaces to match our programmatic excellence. God has been stirring my heart with the verse from Isaiah 54:2. We need to stretch out our campus “tent.” We can’t do it without your input and support. We invite you to explore what lies before us as we Dream God-Sized Dreams. I’m also excited to give you a sneak peek of other profound and exciting initiatives coming up in Phase 1 of our campaign.
In partnership and service,
