Bearings on the Future: The Tidewater Community College Strategic Plan.
Tidewater Community Coll., Norfolk, VA.
This document describes strategic planning at Tidewater Community College (TCC) (Virginia). The TCC strategic plan is the culmination of two years of intensive discussions among the college faculty, students, and board members, as well as the members of the South Hampton Roads community at large. This plan comprises three sections. The first articulates the core values and strategic vision of the college as developed from the strategic planning process. TCC's core values can be summarized as follows: access and successful student achievement; respect for individuality and a commitment to fostering unique strengths in different people; partnership with a range of constituencies; a vital and engaging learning environment; and service and accountability. The second section describes the strategic goals that will guide TCC's planning decisions in coming years. The college has defined five strategic goals: (1) strengthen the quality of the teaching and learning environment; (2) foster the development of the whole student; (3) diversify the funding base of the college; (4) contribute to the sustainable social, cultural, and economic growth of South Hampton Roads; and (5) leverage the benefits of a college that consists of multiple campuses, divisions, and programs. The third section describes some important means and measures the college will apply in achieving these goals. (JA)
