A Message from Brandon McKelvey, Vice President, Analytics and Planning
Building on the ambitious goals of our Strategic Impact Plan, work is underway to map out the way we will achieve those goals and create a blueprint for opportunity and equity.
Before spring break, I shared an invitation to join one of four Institutional Planning Work Teams that would help build the plans that will inform our Impact Plan goals. I received an overwhelming response for service on the Institutional Planning teams and am looking forward to continuing the strategic planning work.
The four Institutional Planning Teams are:
- Academic Program Plan
- Equity Plan
- Learning Plan
- Student Experience Team
A fifth team will be established for Community Impact after a community survey is conducted.
Institutional Planning Meetings
Each institutional planning team consists of between 15 and 25 participants including faculty, staff, administrators and students. Each planning team is co-chaired by a campus administrator, district administrator and/or faculty council member. These teams will meet bi-weekly.
Next Steps for Institutional Planning
Following the institutional planning kick-off meeting on Wednesday, March 24, 2021, each of the institutional planning teams will meet at least four times to:
- Review the feedback from the ideation sessions along with draft, emerging strategies that have been gathered from this feedback.
- Edit the draft, emerging strategies.
- Add additional strategies when appropriate.
- Complete a high-level, work plan for each strategy.
- Place the strategies on a three-year timeline to monitor and track progress.
Between each week of meetings, an update of the progress will be provided. At the conclusion of the institutional planning process, the teams will have identified strategies, built work plans and constructed a three-year work timeline. This information will be shared at the end of the institutional planning process. Please stay tuned to your email for updates via The Grove and employee newsletters.
Thank you to all of you who have participated and continue to engage in this strategic planning process. As always, please feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or would like additional information on the work teams or the institutional planning.
