Mission Statement
Midway College shapes and inspires the lives of students in the historic Women's College and coeducational undergraduate and graduate programs through a student-centered, global education that leads to rewarding careers and responsible citizenship.
Background Statement
Midway College, formerly the Kentucky Female Orphan School, was the dream of  Dr. Lewis Letig Pinkerton, a young physician and minister of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).  Together with James Ware Parrish, the Midway Christian Church elder who raised the funds necessary to open the school, they joined with other progressive thinkers to launch a revolutionary educational experiment.  In antebellum Kentucky, the few girls who received formal education were taught to read only because it was considered necessary for their role as mothers.  When they reached adulthood, they would read the Bible to their children.  Female orphans were rarely offered even this meager amount of schooling.  Without education or parental support or concern, the most many could hope for was a lifetime of  drudgery as a maid or a laborer. The liberal arts curriculum and career preparation proposed by Dr. L.L. Pinkerton was a comprehensive solution to this tragic situation, and the benefits reached far beyond the individual girls who attended the school.  Dr. L. L. Pinkerton's dream became a reality as Midway-educated teachers went forth to share their learning with youngsters throughout the state and region.  In the years since its inception, the institution has evolved to meet the educational needs of women while preserving the goals and standards of its founders.  Today, Midway College has achieved its goal of excellence in education, providing advanced instruction in a broad range of subjects based upon a strong liberal arts curriculum.  The campus and programs have grown with the school's enrollment, yet many of the traditional ideals Midway was founded on have remained constant.  The college's affiliation with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) remains strong and many members of the student body are active members of Christian Church congregations.
Impact Statement
President John Marsden began his tenure at Midway College on February 1, 2013.  In this brief time he has built a new leadership team, brought about greater financial stability for the institution, and led the campus in a strategic visioning process which establishes the college's priorities through 2017.  The vision focuses on strengthening our core, enhancing the Midway experience, and growing strategically.
Needs Statement
1. Grow our endowment through charitable gifts.
2. Increase enrollment across all areas.
3. Enhance facilities.
4. Develop new academic programs.
5. Increase percentage of faculty with terminal degrees.
