The 2016-19 Strategic Plan has been developed with input from all constituencies throughout the Southwestern Community College District. Members of the community, neighbors, business and industry along with faculty, students and staff participated in the district-wide collaborative planning process. In Spring 2015, several workshops, hosted by the Office of Institutional Effectiveness, were conducted in support of shared planning and decision-making and for the purpose of renewing our institution's 2012-15 Strategic Plan and establishing new action items for the next three-year term.
The 2016-19 Strategic Plan builds upon previous college plans as well as current initiatives, and its purpose is to engage the college community in the challenges of the future, the lessons of the past and to sustain dialogue, consensus and collaboration in support of SWC's mission, vision, and values. The foundation of our Plan is structured around the following eight strategic priorities: Teaching and Learning, Student Access, Student Success, Economic, Workforce, & Community Development, Organizational Effectiveness, Institutional Technology and Research, Physical and Financial Resources, and Human Resources.
