A Strategic Planning Workbook.
This workbook outlines the Salem Community College's (New Jersey) Strategic Planning Initiative (SPI), which will enable the college to enter the 21st Century as an active agent in the educational advancement of the Salem community. SPI will allow college faculty, staff, students, and the local community to reflect on the vitality of the college and its current and future relationship with all of its stakeholders. The strategic planning process will establish a set of eight planning teams: (1) academic assessment and program review; (2) community/customized education; (3) enrollment management and recruitment; (4) facilities; (5) financial planning; (6) information technology; (7) institutional advancement; and (8) student retention. Included in the workbook are four sections: (1) overview of the strategic planning process; (2) vision, mission evaluation and development; (3) meeting guidelines for strategic planning, which include information gathering and exploring, identifying and assessing alternative actions, creating criteria for choosing alternatives for action, and proposal development and planning; and (4) strategic plan format (template). Appendices A through D provide general expectations and principles that guide the planning process, a glossary of SCC strategic planning, tips on writing proposals and plans, and a sample meeting evaluation form.
