Five Year Strategic Plan, 1997-2002.
Westchester Community Coll., Valhalla, NY. Office of Institutional Research.
This report presents Westchester Community College's Strategic Plan for 1997-2002. Included are the following: a list of the Strategic Planning Committee members; an executive summary; an overview of the planning process; an institutional profile; a demographic and economic outlook for 1998-2008; and a summary of the focus-goals and objectives in the 5-year action plan, which are student retention, academic technology, marketing and recruitment, and revenue enhancement and restructuring. To effect greater student retention, the college looks to provide the support and counseling necessary to keep students at the college through the achievement of their intended goals. This may include graduating, transferring to a four-year college, taking several courses to retool for a job, or just taking a course for personal enrichment. The vision in continued innovations in academic technology is to continue to invest in the expertise and equipment necessary to assure that the college maintains its leadership status in this area. Through increased marketing and recruitment, the college tries to make sure that any one seeking the benefits of higher education is aware of the college and knows of the high quality instruction it provides at very affordable prices for students of all ages. The college hopes to find other sources of revenue to keep tuition affordable and to defray the mounting costs of state-of-the-art equipment and instructional facilities through revenue enhancement and restructuring.
