Strategic Plan Details
The Strategic Plan is reviewed annually and updated as necessary. Below is the most recent update.
Annually, tactics for accomplishing strategic goals, objectives, and priorities are modified and actions, output measures, and outcome measures of success are identified. Below is the current set of tactics used to guide the strategic direction of the College.
Each year, UCC derives strategic priorities from the Strategic Plan. Priorities are adjusted at the beginning of each academic year, based on the results of the annual review of the strategic plan, and are used to inform the subsequent year’s tactical plans, operational plans, and resource allocation.
The Strategic Plan serves as a roadmap for achieving the College's vision for the future. The plan provides the systematic guidance necessary to fulfill the College's mission, reflects the College's values, and provides measurable goals for multiple years.
Development of the 2018-2021 Strategic Plan
In October 2018, the UCC Board of Education approved a new strategic plan for the College. The approval came after months of collective work with input from College employees, students, and community members. The draft plan was reviewed and revised multiple times before the final plan was presented to the Board.
Extension of the 2018-2021 Strategic Plan to 2023
In March 2021, the UCC Board of Education approved a two-year extension of the strategic plan. After a review of progress on the 2018-2021 Strategic Plan, it was determined that the plan remains relevant and that continued work on the goals and objectives will strategically move the college forward. The Strategic Plan is updated each year following an annual assessment process, allowing fine-tuning and adjustments to the plan.
Strategic Plan Annual Reports
The Strategic Plan is monitored on a monthly basis by the Senior Leadership Team and the Provost’s Council. Progress is formally reviewed mid-year and at the end of the year by UCC’s Strategic Plan Oversight Committee (SPOC). SPOC analyzes progress on strategic priorities, utilizing assessment data from academic and support areas of operation plus institutional indicator data, and makes recommendations for improvement and new priorities.
