You’re Invited to Join a Strategic Planning Work Team

strategic-planning-groveA message from Susan Ledlow, Vice President, Academic Affairs and Planning

While last year was the year of reflection, this year we will focus on creating Valencia’s next strategic plan. During this planning process, we will continue to build on our current mission and vision, and the four strategic goals (Build Pathways, Learning Assured, Invest in Each Other, Partner with the Community) from the previous plan will remain.

As we discussed at Academic Assembly, we are not starting the planning process with a blank slate. There are a number of significant initiatives that are already underway, such as the New Student Experience, the redesign of online learning, assessment for learningpart-time faculty development and DirectConnect 2.0. It is very important for us to capture that work in the new plan and build upon it. It’s equally important that we collaborate to identify new work that may not yet have been identified. In addition to planning for the next steps in our learning-centered journey, a concerted emphasis will be placed on deepening our work and impact within the community.

We need your help. Planning at Valencia is a collaborative effort, and your participation is needed. You are invited to join one of five work teams: Assessment for Learning, DirectConnect 2.0, New Student Experience, Online Learning or Part-Time Faculty Engagement. These strategic planning teams will assess the progress of these collegewide initiatives and make recommendations on how to further the work over the next three to five years. Teams will also recommend potential initiatives that the College might explore.

Please respond by Friday, September 11, 2015. We look forward to working with you in the development of the new collegewide strategic plan. If you would like more information on the strategic planning process, or have questions about the work teams, contact Noelia Maldonado Rodriguez, planning support specialist, at or extension 3487.
