2012-2015 Strategic Planning

Southwestern College began development of its Strategic Plan in 2004, culminating in the Board-approved Plan 2006-09. In 2010, the initial Strategic Plan was extended through 2012, with annual updates included for 2010-11 and 2011-12.

In Spring 2011, a timeline for full renewal of the Strategic Plan was approved. A revised plan effective through 2015 is expected to be approved and implemented by August 2012.

2012-2015 Strategic Priorities, Goals, and Objectives

The Shared Consultation Council (SCC) has Strategic Planning as one of its primary duties and purposes. SCC is co-chaired by the Superintendent/President and the Academic Senate President. There are eight strategic priorities in the Strategic Plan, with “Teaching & Learning” and “Technology & Research” added in March of 2011. Each Strategic Priority has a committee, with Team Leaders, who develop the goals and annual action plans; and then review, monitor, evaluate, assess and modify them as part of the annual planning cycle.
