Strategic Planning: Planning Strategically for Student Success
While educational leaders are familiar with strategic planning for accountability purposes, few properly implement their strategic plan and fail to realize its full potential. Fatigue around strategic planning sets in with those involved in the process due in part to inaction, with campus constituents often seeing this process as futile. Santa Fe Community College (SFCC) was able to develop a culture of strategic planning where principles of continuous quality improvement were embraced as its centerpiece. A change in culture as it pertains to the strategic plan saw SFCC double the graduation rate in three years and double the number of certificate completions in a 5-year period. This practice brief explores the ways in which strategic planning has taken place at one community college and provides concrete strategies that community college practitioners, planners, and administrators can take as part of implementing their institutional strategic plan in a successful manner.
