1. A.3 The institution’s planning and budgeting priorities align with and support the mission.
The Strategic Plan (revised Fall 2012), based on the College mission, forms the foundation to support all budgeting priorities. The goals and objectives for the President’s office focus on external partnerships, community outreach programs, civic engagement, and securing external funds for the College. The academic members of the College develop their goals and objectives to improve the quality of academic programs, add new programs to fill community needs, and improve instruction and student learning and success. Student Services strategic initiatives focus on recruitment, admissions, and retention. These priorities support the mission by providing resources to develop alternative learning formats, improve students’ competence in their field of study, and demonstrate service to the community (See Strategic Plan Revised Fall 2012 (82 KB, PDF)).
