The destination is excellence. The destination is greatness. The destination is not in question. Our mission is to clearly define the vision and the roadmap for the journey. Our strategic planning process, Alcorn 20/20, will help us understand where we are now, and how we get there from here. 

Alcorn 20/20 is an inclusive, comprehensive effort to clearly delineate the concrete steps and measurable performance indicators by which we gauge our progress toward our goal. We recognize that the journey toward excellence is not that of an individual or of a small group, but a journey upon which the entire Alcorn constituency must embark if we are to achieve maximum success.

The Barthwell Group has tremendous experience and a track record of success in guiding the strategic planning and management initiatives of corporations, foundations and institutions of higher education.
