About Strategic Planning

The purpose of a strategic plan is to help the college address its most pressing challenges over a realistic time frame to better serve students and the community. A wide range of faculty, staff, students, and community representatives work collaboratively to update the college mission, vision, and values, and create a multi-year plan.

The Strategic Plan was approved by the Board of Education on June 16, 2015 and updated and presented to the Board on December 17, 2013. This plan and the 2008-2012 plan, 2015-2015 plan, annual plan updates, and short history may be accessed at the left hand side of this page.

RCC’s Strategic Plan is supported by both institutional wide strategic initiatives (such as implementing Guided Pathways), and yearly departmental planning.  Departments play an important role in mission fulfillment. During the annual planning process, departments across the campus align their yearly goals to the overall strategic plan and assess goal outcomes.

By engaging in this goal alignment process and measuring outcomes, departments can directly impact RCC’s overall objectives. They are generally the first in identifying goals specific to their work within the college, and identifying their importance. With all departments creating goals appropriate to their work, but moving in a common direction, together the departments can have a large collective impact on meeting RCC’s “Wildly Important Goals”. 

The institutional strategic plan serves as a tool to align everyone within the institution, organizing movement in a common direction. It acts as a tool to break down silos, with the ultimate goal of fulling RCC’s mission.
