College Goals/Strategic Directions

Beginning in Spring of 2009 the college undertook a rigorous process to develop a new Educational Master Plan (EMP).  Through a series of townhall meetings with the local community, on campus dialogues, and the work of EMP/Accreditaion Faculty Based Task Team, the college developed a comprehensive Educational Master Plan that included Mission Critical Priorities (see the EMP link above), Signature Goals, and the Project 90 Achievement Areas and Targets.  The Mission Critical Priorities, Signature Goals, and the Project 90 Achievement Areas will be used to guide the college's planning and resource allocation process for the next 10 years and beyond.
