Strategic Planning: COVID-19 Update

In March 2020, SCTCC paused its strategic planning efforts to prioritize serving students and shaping our services in the new environment amidst COVID-19. Plans to resume strategic planning activities are set for early fall 2020 semester, when all faculty and staff are able to focus and engage again in this important work of shaping our future, together. For questions about progress and activities below please contact the Tri-Chairs at

SCTCC is undertaking a collaborative, inclusive, and interactive deep dive into our strategic planning process in 2019/2020. This process is being guided by Campus Works, Inc., three appointed tri-chairs, and a Strategic Planning Committee representing a wide cross section of SCTCC employees. Together with input from students, staff, and the community we serve, we are creating our future, together.

Strategic Planning Future Events

This signature strategic planning event will include a keynote address focusing on our top priorities followed by Ed-Talks, short, inspiring speeches. Workshops and conversations focused on moving our strategic plan forward will follow.

All college employees are invited to take part in a workshop to discuss institutional values that will guide the campus in working to achieve the priorities identified in the next strategic plan.

During these workshops, committee members will synthesize all of the information and data collected during the process and begin to draft the 3-4 priorities that SCTCC will focus on in the next strategic plan.

All employees will be invited to complete a survey to provide feedback on the drafts of the mission and vision statements, institutional values, and 3-4 strategies for the new strategic plan. Results will be shared with the Strategic Planning Committee and Cabinet for their review and consideration before finalizing these key components of the strategic plan.

Strategic Planning Past Events

All employees were invited to contribute their opinions on strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to the college. Emerging themes are being used to inform the selection of Future Summit presentation topics as well as what 3-4 strategies the College will focus on in the strategic plan.

Students and community members were invited to participate in focus groups to share opportunities, goals, and visions for the future of SCTCC.

The Strategic Planning Committee and the Presidential Cabinet gather to review, and possibly create updates to SCTCC’s mission.
