RCTC Launches Strategic Planning
• Strategic Planning Timeline:
- Draft Plan - Mid May, 2015
- Final Plan - End of June, 2015
ROCHESTER, MINN., MARCH 31, 2015 Rochester Community and Technical is launching a strategic planning process that will result in the College’s new strategic plan. Developing a new strategic plan is important for several reasons. First, and foremost, a new strategic plan will provide direction for the future and serves as a public declaration of our priorities in providing a quality educational experience to our students. It will also serve as a declaration of the principles we stand on and a reaffirmation of our vision and mission that guides our institution. Finally, the plan will be our statement of accountability, and we will expect our students and the community to measure our progress in achieving our goals and objectives.
RCTC has 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 have 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 will be conducting online surveys and open forums with students, staff, faculty, and community members.
The planning timeline includes a draft plan by mid-May, and a final plan by the end of June. The strategic planning effort will be completed in the open for all the public to review.
