Development of a new strategic planning document has begun at SDCE. The first meeting occurred last week Tuesday, October 6 and included over 40 participants (each serving as an author of a section of the document). The meeting included discussion and activity related to developing a new vision statement and mission statement as well as discussion regarding the possibility of student support services broadening its mission to include disadvantaged student populations identified in our Student Equity Plan and recent legislation. Work on the SDCE Strategic Plan will continue this fall with a first draft to be completed by the beginning of the spring semester. This strategic planning effort will cover the next five years and will include two documents. The first document addresses planning prior to the accreditation team visit in 2017 and the second document will address the three years following the team visit. The short-term and long-term goals ensure our strategic efforts and timeline align and culminate with our six year accreditation cycle.
Anyone who is interested in getting involved with this effort is welcome to attend Strategic Planning meetings.
The next meeting will be held at North City Campus (mulit-purpose room) on November 30, 2015 from 3 to 5 p.m.
