Directions. The Master Plan for McLennan Community College.
Lowe, Carol, Ed.
This master plan for McLennan Community College (MCC) begins with a mission statement, brief history of the college, and a summary of the planning process. The remainder of the plan lists the 67 strategic goals of the college, the strategies that will be used to attain them, and the planning context within which the goals were developed. In many cases, the planning context reflects parallels between the intended directions for MCC and the national directions presented in "Building Communities: A Vision for a New Century," the report of the Commission on the Future of Community Colleges. Within the broad areas of educational programs, human resources, financial and physical resources, and student services, the goals are presented in the following categories: (1) educational excellence; (2) transfer programs; (3) vocational/technical programs; (4) continuing education; (5) instructional support/library; (6) the Instructional Resources Center; (7) organization and administration; (8) staff development; (9) minority staff recruitment; (10) faculty committees; (11) part-time faculty; (12) faculty loads; (13) faculty salaries; (14) evaluations; (15) academic freedom and tenure; (16) financial resources; (17) physical resources; (18) admissions and registration; (19) student recruitment and retention; (20) minority recruitment and retention; (21) career counseling; (22) non-academic services; (23) the extended community; (24) public relations; and (25) low-cost, advanced courses.
