Slotnick, Sandra; And Others
At Pennsylvania College of Technology (PCT), in Williamsport, long range planning is used to define institutional philosophy and mission and determine strategies to make the best use of available resources and implement actions to fulfill institutional mission. This document presents PCT's long-range plan for 1993-96 in three parts. Following an introduction, the first part reviews the structure and use of the plan; provides PCT's philosophy, mission, and vision statements; and discusses the college's major initiatives for the 1993-94 academic year. Part II provides the body of the long range plan, listing college goals and tasks for the following five areas: instruction, student support, academic support, institutional support, and public service. Each area includes individual goals, lists of tasks to reach the goals, and a status report on any achievements or accomplishments that occurred from the period July 1, 1991 to June 30, 1992. The goals presented in this part are related to outcomes assessment, student retention, student life, program evaluation, staff development, human resources, physical plant, and technical consultation. Finally, part III provides a planning manual for PCT staff, detailing the processes for research and evaluation; for revising the philosophy, mission statements, and goals; for creating, revising, and reporting long range planning task statements; and for developing objectives.
