A fresh start is what this new strategic plan delivers. Right from the beginning, the planning process was different than any previous one at NSCC
The process itself was designed in a collaborative, bottom-up way in the college and wider community have been deeply involved in each step of the plan’s development. The appreciative inquiry process energized our stakeholders while highlighting the college’s strengths. The environmental scanning process helped us understand how our region is changing and what it needs most from its Community College.
President Heineman’s newly reimagined executive cabinet features a Provost to lead the merged departments of Academic Affairs and Student Affairs; a Chief Diversity and Equity Officer, to promote and ensure diversity, equity and inclusion on campus; a Chief People and Culture Officer, to attract, retain and develop the college’s workforce; and a Chief Financial Officer, to steward the college’s financial resources.
This new leadership team is poised to inspire and guide an energized staff to further the strong history of innovation that NSCC has built over the years, from pioneering teaching and learning online, to developing a groundbreaking credit for prior learning program, to spearheading noncredit to credit pathways.
