Vision Statement
“To excel, within our own campus, as well as
 internationally within FarmHouse, to become a
 stronger, more unique chapter that adds to the
rural diversity that we treasure and uphold. We
   will build the whole man, uphold the old and
   create new traditions, and continue to excel
  within our community. Leaders in our chapter
  will strive to reach higher levels of scholarship
 and recruitment, and we will be grateful for the
            predecessors of this chapter.”
Mission Statement

   “Continue to Build the Whole Man”
Overview of Strategic Plan
  This strategic plan was created by the whole
  chapter to provide us with a written set of goals
    and objectives, that will be measured, and if
 necessary changed, in order to make us a better
 chapter. It will be updated annually by the entire
     chapter at the winter retreat, and reviewed
      monthly by the Strategic Plan Evaluation
 Committee. It will provide the new executive with
 a guide and a sense of direction to follow for their
 term. Areas needing focus are mentioned in this
  plan, and can change from year to year, based
 on the concern of those involved in the review of
                      this plan.
