MCC’s Board of Trustees approved the College’s 2017-2021 Strategic Plan at its Sept. 28 meeting.
The plan includes goals and objectives for five overall strategic themes: Student Success; Equity, Diversity and Inclusion; Resource Development and Alignment; Culture and Environment; and Structure and Processes.
Following a year of in-depth preparation for the strategic planning process and two years of development that included feedback from community and campus constituents, a strategic plan was submitted to the Board of Trustees for acceptance. Trustees accepted the proposed plan as presented at the Jan. 19, 2017, meeting.
A few months later, Dr. Kimberly Beatty was appointed MCC chancellor following the retirement of Chancellor Mark James. Dr. Beatty, who will be responsible for implementing the plan, examined its six themes and requested input to reduce the number to five. Recognizing that the trustees had not been engaged in development of the plan, she also sought their input.
The result of this work was a revised Metropolitan Community College Strategic Plan that will serve as the basis on which all MCC campuses, departments and programs will develop their own individual plans.
The plan will be implemented by incorporating it into the goals of the MCC chancellor, Executive Cabinet, departments, programs and employees. A system for reporting and sharing progress will be developed. Key performance indicators will be utilized to measure whether or not MCC is achieving its strategic goals and objectives.
