Long Range Strategic Plan, 1990. Florida Association of Community Colleges.
Florida Association of Community Colleges, Tallahassee.
The Florida Association of Community Colleges (FACC), comprised of individual faculty, career employees, administrators, and trustees, was organized to promote the development and advancement of Florida public community college education. At the fall 1989 FACC convention, a Long-Range Strategic Planning Committee was established. During the first phase of the planning process, the committee reviewed a series of broad questions concerning the structure and role of the FACC. In phase II, specific issues and questions of relevance to community college education in Florida were identified. In phase III, eight planning goals, to be addressed over a 5-year period, were developed: (1) mobilizing public support to influence legislation; (2) increasing FACC membership; (3) focusing statewide attention on international education; (4) supporting the growth of high technology; (5) increasing cooperation and coordination among community colleges; (6) enhancing communication and collegiality among community college groups; (7) increasing cooperation among all sectors of public education; and (8) supporting diversity through the involvement and enhancement of minority populations. This five-year strategic plan reviews the issues and questions identified during each phase of the planning process; outlines specific objectives for each of the eight goals identified in phase III; lists ongoing committee activities to implement these goals; and provides a detailed timeline of activities to be completed through December 1995. For each activity in the timeline, the committees, campus chapters, and other organizational entities responsible for implementation are identified. (PAA)
