Strategic Plan

A strategic planning task force comprised of faculty, staff, students, and community members was organized in January 2020. The task force’s charge was to develop strategic goals and recommend corresponding sub goals to guide the College’s future work efforts, activities, and objectives aligned with Minnesota State’s Equity 2030 framework. In January of 2020, the task force started its work; feedback sessions that included staff, faculty, community members and students occurred during the spring and fall semesters of 2020 via zoom, in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2021-2030 planning process emphasized ongoing communication, continuous input, and direct consultation from all constituents. The 2021-2030 Strategic Plan represents the goals and the work of the 18-member task force with guidance from the College’s stakeholders and constituents.
