Strategic Planning Process
Starting the Strategic Planning Cycle
Now is the optimal time to start the next strategic planning cycle, since the College's current Strategic Plan runs through 2017 and it takes a year or more to develop a new plan. New College leadership also provides an opportunity for everyone to participate in envisioning the future of the College. In addition, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) requires us to have a strategic plan in place, and made recommendations in 2014 related to mission review and planning.
The purposes of Strategic Planning are:
- Facilitate alignment and integration
- Identify Strategic Goals and Objectives
- Drive resource allocation
- Serve as a precursor to an implementation plan
