Over 100 individuals from throughout the institution worked with the college's expansive governance system for nearly a year to create a FY 2013 - 2016 Strategic Plan - Pathways, Partnership, Performance... Leading the Way. A Strategic Planning Steering Committee (SPSC) encouraged participation of both internal and external constituencies in developing three strategic directions with affiliated goals and priorities for each, to be completed in the next three years. The plan directly correlates with the Department of Education's strategic Vision Project, a public agenda for higher education in Massachusetts.
We will design and develop clear pathways to student learning, support certificate and degree completion, promote and enhance transfer options, and improve resources for career exploration, preparation, and placement.
We will further develop alignments with state workforce needs, strengthen engagement through community partnerships, increase outreach efforts, and provide leadership to regional, state, and national initiatives that promote student access and success.
We will enhance institutional effectiveness and competitive advantage, maximize resources, pursue external support, and create a sustainable and socially responsible campus and community environment.
