Strategic planning and goals for 2004-2007 at CMC
Greetings! As mentioned in the last CMC Corner, our strategic planning process for the Summit Campus is completed. Now, the college will endeavor to meld the unique plans from each campus and district office department into one plan. This process should be completed by the first of the year.As you may recall, the community portion of the Summit Campus strategic planning process began early this past fall with the 1-on-1/ small group visits I had with many of you to discuss the strengths and challenges of Summit Campus. The campus staff completed a Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats analysis six months prior. During the past eight months, many conversations, meetings and retreats have occurred among the staff discussing and debating the best focus, vision, and direction for CMC in Summit County. These conversations incorporated the Board of Trustees Ends statements, the President’s goals, and the College goals that tie in with our accreditation process.I believe we have ended up with an exciting three-year plan, focusing on many of the values that we hold dear: learning, access, personal enrichment, fiscal soundness, facilities, student satisfaction and scholarship opportunities. I will sketch some of the highlights for you. If you would like a copy with the details and timelines, please contact Debbie Devine, executive assistant to the dean (email@example.com).Goal 1: By summer 2007, CMC Summit will improve student satisfaction toward individual learning goals by: a) creating a three-year sequential course master plan that is location and time diverse; b) creating a comprehensive campuswide advising program; c) creating systems of communication for obtaining student feedback; and d) providing increased access for special populations.Goal 2: By summer 2007, CMC Summit will improve access to scholarship opportunities by: a) seeking and developing relationships with organizations that provide scholarships; and b) promoting scholarship opportunities.Goal 3: By summer 2007, CMC Summit will support a successful “life-long learning” program by: a) developing and implementing a “life-long learning” business plan; and b) analyzing trends and program needs to increase educational/training opportunities.Goal 4: By summer 2007, CMC Summit will identify, assess, develop and strengthen programs by: a) crafting an enrollment management plan; b) encouraging greater partnering of faculty resources and ideas; c) reestablishing/re-energizing all advisory groups; and d) utilizing community volunteers.Goal 5: By summer 2007, CMC Summit will maintain fiscal soundness by meeting the budget annually.Goal 6: By summer 2007, CMC Summit will implement the Facilities Master Plan II by building, upgrading or consolidating CMC facilities within Summit County.As you can see, we are anxious to begin these new ways of looking at how we serve our community. If you are interested in getting involved in any of these activities, please contact me at LBornstein@coloradomtn.edu.I look forward to working together with you to meet and exceed our strategic planning initiatives at CMC Summit. Leah Bornstein is the dean of the CMC Summit Campus.
