Western Iowa Tech Community College Strategic Plan: 2000-2003.
Western Iowa Tech, Sioux City.
The Western Iowa Tech Community College's (WITCC's) Strategic Plan 2000-2003 is the result of a year-long process in three distinct phases. The first phase was an assessment of the 1998-2000 Strategic Plan. The second phase had staff and faculty identify issues perceived as critical to the future of the college. During the third phase, objectives and strategies for each goal were developed. This plan outlines 25 goals grouped into 5 common themes of college operations: Enrollment Growth and Student Services; Governance and Ethics; Academic Community, Curriculum, and Instructional Technology; Fiscal Management, Resource Development, and Facilities; and Global Citizenship and Educational Partnerships. Specific goals include: (1) developing and implementing a plan and systems for managed enrollment growth for the next three years; (2) strengthening the tradition of local control for community colleges through cooperative efforts among regional community college boards; (3) developing an academic community among students, faculty, and staff; (4) expanding community education with an emphasis on community education opportunities in rural communities and at rural campuses; and (5) increasing financial support through the development of new sources of funding. This plan also discusses the college's background and presents accreditation criteria. (JA)
