Simply put, strategic planning is a rigorous, cyclical assessment of where we are, where we want to be, how do we get there, and how do we measure progress. This process begins with assessing the external and internal environment in which the college operates. It is an analysis of internal and external factors that allows the planning team to see the institution as a whole in relation to its environment. This is one of the key accomplishments of effective planning. The results of the analysis should:
- Point out the most significant indicators of need;
- Aid decision makers by placing the institution’s priority issues in context; and,
- Help define or describe the significance of a strategic issue.
At this time, college-level planning is largely achieved through the leadership of the Planning and Budget Committee and the Office of Planning, Research, and Institutional Effectiveness (PRIE). PRIE plays a support role for the institution by conducting research and analysis on student enrollment trends, student success, providing data to campus decision makers and by writing ad hoc reports for campus groups engaged in program evaluations.
