A strategic planning task force comprised of faculty, staff, students, and community members was organized in December 2015. The task force’s job was to develop strategic goals and recommend corresponding sub goals to guide the College’s future work efforts, activities, and objectives. The 2016-2020 planning process emphasized ongoing communication, continuous input, and direct in-person consultation from all constituents. In the first half of 2016, an external focus group was hosted on campus, individual interviews with community leaders were conducted, feedback sessions occurred during College development days and staff meetings, and input from students was sought via a Student Success day presence. Survey responses, feedback forms, and direct communication with task force members was encouraged from all faculty, staff, and students. The 2016-2020 Strategic Goals represent the work of the 19-member task force and guidance from the College’s stakeholders and constituents.
