Spangler, Mary; Seymour, Dan
This report details the Los Angeles City College's (California) strategic plan for the years 2002 to 2008. The report, the product of a process of commissioning a "Vision Team" and holding "Town Meetings," resulted in eight institution-wide priorities: (1) to foster a culture of academic excellence; (2) to maintain and enhance a safe campus environment; (3) to expand and strengthen partnerships with business and community; (4) to create a student-centered learning environment; (5) to enhance the college's visibility and reputation for quality; (6) to increase college resources; (7) to develop and implement increased allocation of resources; and (8) to collect and use data more systematically for organizational improvement. A set of strategies, intended outcomes, and "vital signs" are provided for each priority, as is an article that explains the priority and the opinions campus leaders have about it. Includes a list of Town Meeting participants and a discussion of economic, demographic, educational, public policy, societal, and technological planning assumptions. (ND)
