The Educational Improvement Strategy (EIS) is the proposed Masterplan to guide Wofford over the next ten to twenty years.
The EIS is based upon the 1987 Masterplan and incorporates all subsequent revisions by the Board of Trustees in 1989, 1992, and 1996. The proposed changes to these documents reflect the work of the cross-functional teams, various committees of the Board of Trustees, and the administration.
The purpose of the EIS is to provide a framework for establishing the level of educational quality Wofford will pursue (Part One) the means by which it intends to fulfill this direction (Part Two) and the organization structure necessary to manage these efforts effectively (Part III).

John C. Kilgo
FOREWORD President John C. Kilgo, of Trinity College, prepared the contents of this volume to be presented in manuscript form to the members of Bishop Duncan's family. He was for many years closely associated with Bishop Duncan and between them there existed the warmest and most intimate friendship. A number of Bishop Duncan's friends and admirers expressed a desire to have a copy of this appreciation in permanent form, and Dr. Kilgo has kindly given us permission to have the manuscript printed. We are issuing this volume as a tribute of respect to one whose life and labors have been the richest benediction, and whose memory we cherish as a priceless heritage. It is very fitting that this tribute should come from Trinity College. He was one of its most loyal and sincere friends, and was an alumnus in that he received the degree of Doctor of Laws from the institution.
This is an example of an early college viewbook, with pictures of the campus, buildings, student groups, and faculty, and some information about the college.
