Development of a Process To Review and Revise the Mission, Goals, and Institutional Objectives of North Arkansas Community/Technical College.
Stockton, James J.
North Arkansas Community/Technical College (NACTC) was formed in July 1993 by the consolidation of a community and technical college in the community of Harrison, Arkansas, but used the mission statement, goals, and institutional objectives developed by the community college. A project was undertaken to develop a process for reviewing and revising NACTC's mission statement, goals, and institutional objectives, focusing on the type of process that should be developed and the activities and participants to be included in the process. Sources of data included a review of the literature, input from a committee formed to discuss issues and practical requirements, and sample processes obtained from their colleges. The first draft of the process was completed March 2, 1995 and distributed to a summative evaluation committee for revisions. Copies of the final draft were presented to the NACTC president. The process developed included environmental scanning activities; a campus-wide planning process; provisions for community input and evaluation of the process; and the opportunity for other planning documents, such as vision or values statements, to be considered during the development of mission, goals, and institutional objectives. (Contains 33 references.) (Appendixes include criteria used in developing the planning process, information on members of formative and summative evaluation committees formed for the project, and the final planning process.)
