Following the path paved by our ongoing planning efforts…

[Video scans to blank part of screen. As the next series of text is written an archway is gradually drawn, starting with the foundation and ending with the addition of the keystone at the top.  The name sof the different plans are written on the bricks that make up the archway.]

Like an archway, our strategic plans help to provide direction

Built on a foundation of…

Mission, goals & core values

Community & regional needs

Held up by supporting plans such as… Information Resources plan; Facilities plan; Finance plan; Emergency plan

Informed by our driving master plans…Equity plan; Student services plan; Academic plan

All held together by the keystone… the Strategic plan

[Video scans to a new part of the screen and the hand draws an arrow from left to right.  The following text is entered next to the arrow from left to right, illustrating a timeline.]
