RCTC's Strategic Planning
• Strategic Planning Timeline:
- Draft Plan - Mid July, 2015
- Final Plan - Mid-March, 2016
ROCHESTER, MINNESOTA, 2015-16
Rochester Community and Technical launched a strategic planning process in 2015-16 with the anticipated outcome to be a new College Strategic Plan. Developing a new strategic plan is important for several reasons. First, and foremost, a new strategic plan provides direction for the future and serves as a public declaration of our priorities in providing a quality educational experience to our students. It also serves as a declaration of the principles we stand on and a reaffirmation of our vision and mission that guides our institution. Finally, the plan is our statement of accountability, and we will expect our students and the community to measure our progress in achieving our goals and objectives.
RCTC retained MGT of America, Inc. (MGT), a national consulting and research firm, to assist with the overall strategic planning process and to work in partnership with the RCTC Strategic Planning Task Force. Representatives from MGT met with the Strategic Planning Task Force, conducted several one-on-one meetings and presented at the RCTC All Program Advisory Committee session. In addition MGT conducted online surveys and open forums with students, staff, faculty, and community members.
The planning timeline includes a draft plan by mid-July, and a final plan in the coming months.
