The 2013-2018 Mott Community College Strategic Plan was approved by the Board of Trustees on November 26, 2012. This is the third consecutive five-year strategic plan presented since 2000-2001. The plan is based on seven categories of overarching goals: student learning & success; technology initiatives; systems improvement; economic development; human resources development; institutional image & community relations; and budget/finance. The plan contains 27 overarching goals, many of which were revised and/or updated from the previous 2007-2012 Strategic Plan.
Since 2000-2001, MCC has used an inclusive process of stakeholder input for the development of institutional priorities. The current goals were updated using a “refresh” process, where departmental managers engaged all employees to suggest revisions and additional goals. The strategic planning process was also designed to garner input from numerous college stakeholders and other external data sources. The plan also incorporates feedback from outside sources such as recent external reviews from The Aspen Institute’s College Excellence Program, Achieving the Dream (AtD), and the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP). In addition to a variety of environmental scanning activities, MCC has a sustained practice of collaboration and benchmarking with local K-12 school districts and other comprehensive community colleges.
The Executive Cabinet analyzed and synthesized the internal and external feedback generated during the strategic planning process to create a model strategic plan suitable for input from members of the college community, and ultimately for approval by the Board of Trustees. This plan is meant to be a consistent and comprehensive guide to college planning and institutional priories for the coming years.
