Thank You for Sharing Your Ideas

Tuesday, February 23, 2021

A Message from Brandon McKelvey, Vice President, Analytics and Planning

Thank you to all who participated in one of the many Strategic Planning Idea Gathering Sessions that were offered from Monday, January 25 through Friday, February 12, 2021.

Faculty and staff from across the College came together with their colleagues to think about and discuss how Valencia College will support student access and success. Between our Forum and Brainstorming Sessions, more than 400 employees participated, allowing us to generate high-quality ideas.

Over 14 core sessions were offered, with an additional two on Learning Day and several held for teams by requests. Each session had its own collection of wonderful ideas, generative discussions and thoughtful suggestions.

Our survey will stay open until the end of the week for additional idea submissions. Special thanks to everyone who submitted their ideas through our Digital On-Demand and Onsite Idea Collection stations.

I am grateful for all of the participation and the ideas and suggestions that were shared during this process. I feel confident that with our amazing collaboration we will be able to build on this great work to inform our institutional plans.

We look forward to reviewing your input and ideas, and will send updates on emerging themes and the next steps in the strategic impact planning process in the coming weeks. Please feel free to reach out to me at if you have questions or would like additional information about the strategic planning process.
