Strategic Planning

2020-2021 Strategic Drivers

  1. Equity is not only a value of our institution and a desired outcome, but a process of intentional action focused on operationalizing our equity lens, implementing professional development and culturally responsive practices, and empowering students.
  2. Improve communication through website re-organization, enhanced internal and external information sharing, and identification of reliable two-way channel(s) for student communication. The College must ensure that communication in any form is accessible with regard to digital format, language use, and technology.
  3. Align planning and evaluation documents and ensure planning and evaluation documents are visible to relevant constituent groups.
  4. Utilize physical, capital, and human resources more effectively.
