Five Year Strategic Plan, 1993-1997, Lakeland Community College.
Lakeland Community Coll., Mentor, OH.
In 1990, the newly formed Planning Advisory Committee at Lakewood Community College (LCC) in Mentor, Ohio, developed the college's first 5-year strategic plan with input from across the campus. This plan for 1993-97 updates the original 1990-95 plan and is designed to assist in the development of annual goals and objectives. Following an introduction, the report describes the strategic planning process at LCC, which involves the development of a blueprint for excellence to communicate priorities and plans to the community, the completion of an environmental scan, and establishment of institutional and departmental annual goals. Next, the report details LCC's accomplishments resulting from the 1990-1995 strategic plan, describing achievements in the areas of program development, professional development, student support services, and increased business and industry outreach. The report then describes an environmental scan conducted of external and internal factors in December 1992 and discusses LCC's financial needs and fundraising efforts. Finally, the report details planned activities and goals for 1993-97 with respect to the following strategic priorities: (1) sustain and strengthen academic quality; (2) keep career training up to date; (3) provide access with a focus on success; (4) protect the taxpayers' investment in LCC; (5) guarantee fiscal stability and accountable performance; and (6) increase interaction with community and governmental organizations. An appendix reviews strategic priorities and accomplishments for the period 1990-95. (PAA)
