    With a rich history dating back to 1897, Voorhees College has been changing minds and changing lives for more than a century. We're a historically black college with an active, progressive student body and a high ratio of instructors to students that allows personal attention. We're mindful of our traditions but also focused on giving our graduates what they need to succeed in an ever-changing global society. 

    There are four over-arching strategic guiding principles essential to fulfilling the vision, mission, and future success of Voorhees College: 

    Teaching and Learning: The College will provide an unsurpassed, student-centered learning experience led by engaged world-class faculty and staff, and enhanced by a globally diverse student body. 

    Creativity and Innovation: The College will create a unique learning environment that fosters creativity by allowing students to share their ideas about their educational needs. 

    Outreach and Engagement: The College will establish a culture of engagement and collaboration involving the exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of reciprocity with the citizens and institutions of South Carolina, the nation, and the world. 

    Resource Stewardship: The College will remain an affordable institution, recognized for financial sustainability, unparalleled management of human and physical resources, and operational efficiency and effectiveness.
