Sir Sandford Fleming College Repositioning Strategies Report.
Sir Sandford Fleming Coll., Peterborough (Ontario).
This report describes repositioning strategies undertaken by Sir Sandford Fleming College, in Ontario, to respond to changing student demographics, educational demands, and reduced funding. Following opening remarks by the college president providing an overview of the strategies and the use of all-staff meetings to generate responses from the campus community, repositioning strategies are detailed in the areas of: (1) academic redesign, including the suspensions/modifications of programs and new techniques for program delivery; (2) financial strategies to reduce program and non-salary costs and to increase revenue; (3) space consolidation by vacating off-campus facilities during summers; (4) human resources strategies, including an early retirement plan for staff and hiring freezes; and (5) a new organizational structure designed to make the college learner-centerd, flexible, and customer-focused. The report provides an overview of organizational attributes under the new structure; key features of the structure, including six centers of specialization and a learning resource center; and a discussion of benefits to students. Finally, appendixes provide a description of desired organizational attributes and design principles guiding the new structure, organizational charts of the college and divisions, a summary of results from a survey of student satisfaction, and a discussion of the role of leadership and teams in the new centers of specialization.
