Strategic Planning for Linn-Benton Community College: President's Perspective.
Gonzales, Thomas; Keyser, John
This collection of papers explores various aspects of strategic planning at Linn-Benton Community College (LBCC). First, an overview is presented, clarifying what strategic planning is not and describing the strategic planning at LBCC and its objectives (i.e., to develop a plan utilizing community and internal assessments that can be developed into an action plan for the campus programs, to develop mechanisms for community involvement in planning, and to establish a financial plan that follows the strategic planning process). In addition, the overview identifies the four internal and external groups involved in the planning process and their roles. Next, a profile of LBCC as an institution in transition is presented, focusing on changes in the United States, in Oregon, and at LBCC. Then, environmental trends and planning assumptions that will affect LBCC are outlined in the areas of governance, finance, curriculum, student services, teaching/learning, staff development, students/enrollments, social and economic trends, job outlook, and outreach/public relations. A report on a survey conducted to prioritize college goals as a means of informing decisions about budget cuts is followed by a series of recommendations concerning the programs, services, and curriculum of the college. Finally, a chart is presented, identifying the programs at LBCC as declining, stable, or experiencing moderate growth. (HB)
