The "Reveal" data gathering process was completed by June 30th.
During this part of the process, the Institutional Research & Decision Support team oversaw the collection of data from both internal (faculty, staff, and students) and external (community members, business partners) College stakeholders.
The data came in the form of survey responses and group discussions where participants were asked to submit statements that reflect their ideas for what the College should achieve by 2021 in the five themes.
The "Review" data analysis process was completed by August 31st.
When the data collection period closed, all the responses were analyzed internally by the Institutional Research & Decision Support team along with an external evaluator.
That analysis of the data identified similarities and overarching ideas among the responses. From those overarching ideas, the goal statements that make up the Strategic Plan were formed during the Renew stage of the process.
Data Review Groups, made up of volunteer College stakeholders, assisted in distilling the data further.
The "Renew" plan development part of the process was completed by November 30th.
Once the data analysis was complete and the goal statements were created and approved, College departments created tactical plans that align with the goal statements. Tactical plans included implementation steps and measurable outcomes, that will move the College toward the vision reflected in the 2019-2021 Strategic Plan.
During this phase, the Institutional Research & Decision Support team assisted with the creation of tactical plans that were measured and by identifying the ways in which the entire plan was assessed.
The tactical plans were implemented January 1, 2019.
The 2019-2021 Strategic Plan was approved by the Board on December 17, 2018.
