At Pennsylvania College of Technology (PCT), 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 1997-2000 in three parts. The first part describes long range planning and its use at PCT; reviews the structure and use of the plan; provides PCT's philosophy, mission, and vision statements; analyzes strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats facing the college; and discusses major initiatives for the 1997-98 academic year. Part II provides the body of the long range plan, listing college goals and tasks for the following areas: (1) instruction, related to standards, curriculum portfolios, outcomes assessment, foundation skills, and instructional delivery; (2) student support, including recruitment, retention, nontraditional students, matriculation, student life, and services; (3) academic support, related to the program development process, evaluation, staff development, media/computer use, and academic support services; (4) institutional support, related to executive management, budgets, human resources, physical plant, general administration, quality assurance, diversity, and marketing; and (5) public service, including technical consultation and enrichment programming.
