Working together as a college community to accomplish our mission and continuously improve institutional effectiveness is central to what we do each and every day. Given the complexity and diversity of our college community, this means quite a lot of work in different areas with multiple objectives and outcomes being pursued but all focused on student access, learning and achievement and providing the degree of excellence that the community we serve has come to expect.
In order to work efficiently in this complex environment, we rely on a planning system that enables us to continuously evaluate our achievements and outcomes, establish goals and unit level objectives derived from these goals, allocation supporting resources to ensure goals and objectives are achieved, and provide a framework for feedback and change all aimed at continuous process improvement and mission accomplishment. the SCC Strategic Planning System is designed to provide the framework within which the entire college community can work as a coordinated team.
Each one of us - faculty, staff, student, administrator or community member - has an important role to play in the success of the college and the ability of the college to achieve its mission and vision focused on Student Learning!
As such, it is imperative that we share a common understanding of how this system works, how it serves our community and how we all play a role in making it work better through continuous process improvement.
