Jefferson College is committed to a collaborative strategic planning process that supports achievement of the Mission, Vision and Values of the College. Our strategic planning efforts are designed to effectively support a process of continuous improvement and to involve all of our stakeholders including the Board of Trustees, administration, faculty, staff, students and our community. Only through partnering with our community as a whole, can Jefferson College become the institution it aspires to be. Community involvement will help us advance educational and workforce opportunities within Jefferson County and beyond.
The primary purpose of long-range planning is to ensure that institutional resources are focused on the achievement of a set of strategic aims that support the College’s Mission and Vision. The College develops a five-year Strategic Plan to guide overall operations.
The plan contains four strategic priorities that serve as a framework to enable Jefferson College administration, faculty, and staff to live out the mission of the College and move toward achievement of the vision by 2025.
Strategic Priority 1 - Student Success
Strategic Priority 2 - Instructional Excellence
Strategic Priority 3 - Operational Excellence
Strategic Priority 4 - Community Engagement
Additional annual planning occurs at the department and institutional level. Action plans are put in place following assessment processes that identify areas of focus to support the overall Strategic Aims of the College. The Strategic Planning Committee is part of the institutional committee structure and provides support to ensure effective implementation of the Strategic Plan and resources to assist with departmental planning including overseeing the annual Capital Projects process that is tied to the institutional Strategic Aims. The Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Strategic Planning provides support to departments and committees to promote effective planning efforts.
