Implemented Actions since the HLC 2002 Visit

Following the April 2002 HLC visit, the college set out to create a well-coordinated, comprehensive system that would flow from the College’s mission and goals and link academic processes, planning and budgeting.  The system was to be structured to involve more employees and gain from them greater input into the decision-making process.  This involvement would result in a greater sense of shared governance throughout the College.

Lacking the formal processes that would guide development efforts, the attempt to restructure the strategic planning process and create an interrelated system began at the administrative level.  During this period, every effort was made to involve all levels of employees from throughout the College to gain their input.  A number of actions were pursued simultaneously over time.
