The Plan is divided into four goals: To provide relevant, high鈥恞uality learning opportunities; To foster student success and completion; To enhance and cultivate partnerships in business, education, government, and communities to meet current needs of students and emerging trends of the region; To create a sound financial system that maintains long鈥恡erm operational funding, promotes operational sustainability, and utilizes an effective organizational structure. Goal Teams were charged with identifying key strategies to address the goals, determining key stakeholders to manage the strategies, addressing required resources for budgeting and personnel planning, and developing measurable results to show success.聽Due to a slowdown of work during COVID, the Plan鈥檚 timeframe was extended into 2023.

The Plan was built using information gathered from a number of sources, including documents from the Higher Learning Commission, CTE Advisory Committees, the Environmental Scan, and focus groups conducted through 2019. The Planning Teams connected the Strategies and Results to the聽College Mission and Vision, the Governor鈥檚 recent report聽A Plan to Revitalize the Illinois Economy and Build the Workforce of the Future聽(10/2019), the Higher Learning Commission聽Criteria for Accreditation, the Illinois Plan for the聽Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act聽(Perkins V), and other Illinois Community College Board planning initiatives. This collaborative effort reflects the principles of the Partners in Leadership Accountability template of聽See It, Own It, Solve It, Do It, relying on evaluation, evidence鈥恇ased decision making, and commitment to the success of the College.

Goal Co-Champions completed the Strategic Plan Final Report, which was submitted to and accepted by the Board of Trustees at its December 19, 2023, meeting.
