Get Involved – Attend an Upcoming Workshop!

The next in a series of four Strategic Planning Workshops will be held on Monday, Feb. 28, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. (See below for slides and video from previous workshops.)

The process, initiated by President Lloyd Holmes in September, will culminate in a new Educational Master Plan that sets goals in line with the college’s Vision, Mission and Values, along with its Institutional Core Competencies.

Building on a review of enrollment, programs and outcomes, along with regional, state and national trends – all viewed through an equity lens – the plan will provide a road map for what the college would like to achieve by 2025-2026.

The strategic planning process will be coordinated by the College Planning Committee and three co-leads:
