LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT The Hilbert College community begins every January with a College-Wide meeting during which we review our annual “Report Card” that evaluates the progress we are making with our Strategic Plan goals and strategies. In May 2012, we officially completed the strategic plan that guided us over the last five years, Destination 2012. As we looked back, it was rewarding to acknowledge the progress we have made including:

Trinity Hall

• Record number of first time, full time freshman students • Construction of Trinity Hall that houses 155 residence students. • A new General Arts & Sciences Curriculum including a first year seminar • Hilbert’s first graduate programs • A 10% increase in student retention • Two new science lab classrooms accompanied by a new scientific literacy curriculum. • Completion of the 3.5 million dollar Capital Campaign • The addition of two new intercollegiate sports- men’s and women’s lacrosse. • Over 65% increase in annual support. We have accomplished much and we are not done yet! In September, we launched the new strategic plan that will succeed Destination 2012…Vision 2017. The plan’s development included input from stakeholders representing every segment of the College: students, staff, faculty, alumni, trustees, and community leaders. The new plan serves as a bridge between the past and the future and builds upon the gains we made in recruitment, retention, a greater emphasis on student success and engagement as we carry out our Catholic Franciscan mission. The new plan calls upon the College to increase enrollment, continue its unshakable focus on student learning, enhance our physical environment, and expand our outreach to the community.

Students working in the science lab

I am truly proud of our accomplishments and excited about where we are heading. On behalf of the students, faculty, and staff, I gratefully acknowledge your generosity that has made the Destination 2012 accomplishments possible. I hope that you will visit the campus in the near future, visit our web site, or participate in our social media outlets as our journey continues. Sincerely,

Cynthia Zane

FRANCISCAN VALUES Compassion Hope Integrity Joy Peace Respect Service Vision




Hilbert College embraces its mission to be a place where “students from diverse backgrounds are educated in liberal arts and professional programs to become informed citizens committed to serving and strengthening their communities.” At the heart of this is an exciting vision of the complete student experience, inside and outside the classroom.

Trusting in God, Colette Hilbert, a remarkable and saintly woman, left her homeland and family at the age of 23 to respond to the needs of Polish immigrants in America.

Students achieve greater success and retain knowledge longer when they are actively engaged in their learning. This means participating in a dynamic classroom, where concepts are applied, preconceived notions are challenged, and handson experiences reinforce content presented by a highly qualified faculty. It also means providing students with many opportunities to feel connected to the college outside the classroom through clubs, athletic teams, diverse programming including study abroad, and effective advisement and counseling. Hilbert has structured its programs to allow students to start successfully and build on that beginning through an integrated series of classes and opportunities that result in broad preparation for a fruitful career and meaningful future. In their first year, all students take the Foundations Seminar to acquaint them with the college and provide them the tools they will need as they progress. As sophomores, they are expected to enroll in at least one course that includes a service learning component which provides both experiential learning in the course material and promotes engaged citizenship. The cornerstone of the third year is Hilbert’s nationally-recognized “Junior Symposium.” Centered on global current events, the course acquaints students with the world they will live and work in and allows them to engage in respectful dialogue with people who may hold very different opinions and worldviews. Finally, each degree program features a senior

In 1897 she founded the Congregation of the Franciscan Sisters of St. Joseph and extended her influence in the ministry of education in elementary and secondary schools for generations. It was in 1957 that the Franciscan Sisters founded Hilbert College where Mother Colette’s strong faith, concern for others and respect for the unique value of each person, still reflect her guiding principle “in all things love.”

A CATHOLIC, FRANCISCAN COLLEGE Franciscanism dates back to the 12th century in the tiny Italian village of Assisi from the work of one man: St Francis of Assisi. He was more than a saint - he was a prisoner and soldier who possessed a magnanimity of spirit. The son of a wealthy merchant, Francis’ prosperous, rebellious life changed one day with a chance meeting of a leper. Rather than shun this social outcast, as he and so many others had done in the past, Francis embraced him. The gesture led Francis to a life of service to God. Soon after his conversation, Francis was praying before the crucifix at San Damiano when he heard Christ speak: “Francis, go and repair my house.” A man of action, Francis began repairing chapels, financing his work by selling family possessions. Disowned by his father and jeered by the masses, Francis remained focused on his mission. He soon realized that God was speaking not of physical buildings, but the spiritual Church and souls of

capstone experience appropriate for their discipline. Through an internship, major research project, or an intensive symposium, students get the chance to integrate and reflect on their entire academic career and showcase their preparation to begin their career or further integration.


With the addition of professional Master’s programs, accelerated degree-completion opportunities, and updated curricula, Hilbert College has taken the next steps in its development as an institution providing high quality, relevant education built on a strong foundation of Franciscan values.

Although Francis lived only to the age of 44, his message of a life of simplicity and the power of prayer has never faded. Today, St. Francis is a symbol of spiritual love, guidance and hope. His ideals of peace and healing live on at Hilbert.

Francis’ belief in preaching by living the gospel message attracted devoted followers whose lives were changed, eventually leading to the founding of the Franciscan Order.
