Master Academic and Student Affairs Plan 2020-2030

The Master Academic Planning Task Force was charged with establishing academic strategies for achieving the academic and student services elements of the College’s Strategic Plan. This plan achieves that objective by adopting three bold new themes in support of students’ academic success.

Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) Plan

The Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) plan is an institution-wide responsibility that requires consistent monitoring to improve student enrollment. The 2021-2025 SEM plan summarizes the audiences and goals for each phase of the student enrollment cycle – recruitment, onboarding, retention, and completion. It also provides the five-year framework for the institution’s strategies, objectives, and tactics that will assist the College in stabilizing its student enrollment.

Our technology master plan is a strategic document that outlines the goals, objectives, and strategies for leveraging technology at LSC which aligns with our strategic planning. The plan serves as a roadmap for integrating technology into various aspects of the college’s operations, including teaching and learning, administration, infrastructure, and student support services.
