City College is developing a new Strategic Plan during the 2016-17 academic year. This page will include information about the process, timelines and opportunities for input, and resources for work groups.
Strategic Plan Visioning Retreat
About thirty City College faculty, staff, and administrators participated in a day-long retreat on September 30, 2016 as the initial step in the strategic planning process. This group included the current MPAROC membership with the addition of representative individuals to ensure participation from major governance groups and functional areas. The focus for the day was conducting a SWOT analysis: identifying Strengths and Weaknesses of City's current situation and the Opportunities and Threats that may be encountered over the next few years. The results of this workshop are posted below.
Background: Key Characteristics of City College
Step 1: Small group work on Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats
Step 2: Identification of Strategic Issues
Step 3: Draft Goal Statements
Strategic Plan Workgroups
Workgroups were formed in the MPAROC meeting on October 20, 2016. These five groups will meet to develop goal statements and identify objectives and strategies that will support achievement of the goal. Status Reports will be due back to MPAROC by the December 14, 2016 meeting. Work groups will need to complete their proposals by March 8, 2017.
The five goal areas and workgroup conveners are:
