1A.2: Systematic Review of Mission
The college must continually re-evaluate its Mission and Vision in light of its ever-changing environment. In recognition of the need to adapt, Sauk is committed to a regular, systematic review of the Strategic Directions. Several systems have been established to ensure that appropriate revisions occur:
- Board policy establishes an annual review of the Mission and Vision Statements.
- The timeline for the review process is spelled out in the Planning Timeline, which coordinates the college’s planning processes with the budget allocation cycle (Appendix).
- The regular annual review of the Strategic Directions is built into the charge of the Organizational Planning and Improvement Committee (OPIC), which forwards data-influenced recommendations to administration and the Board of Trustees each February (Appendix).
