Salt Lake Community College Strategic Vision, September 2001-June 2006.
Salt Lake Community Coll., UT.
This document reviews July 2001 findings from a team of Salt Lake Community College administrators, faculty, and staff who were appointed by the college President to prepare a strategic plan that defines the strategic vision of Salt Lake Community College. The team utilized a planning process that began with an evaluation of the external and internal trends likely to impact the college and the needs of future learners in the greater community. The team considered demographic, economic, political, labor and workforce, education, and lifestyle trends and determined how each might impact the college. An analysis of institutional strengths, challenges, opportunities, and threats found that the college had numerous resources and capabilities that would enable it to pursue opportunities and address threats. Five qualities and capabilities that were determined to be of the greatest importance included a positive relationship with surrounding institutions; a well qualified faculty; high aspirations; a wide variety of curricula and courses; and attractive and conveniently located physical facilities. Five goals that define how the college will build on its strengths and overcome challenges in order to carry out its mission are also identified. Finally, objectives and strategies describing how the college will achieve each goal are listed. (JS)
