  • 2. Divisions of the College Office of the President Office of the Provost – Vice President Academic Affairs Office of the Vice President Administration and Finance Office of the Vice President Institutional Advancement Office of the Vice President Student Services Office of the Vice President Information Technology College Divisions Board of Trustees
  • 3. Strategic Planning Four major goals have been established for the College. These goals represent the foundation elements that are the basis for achieving preeminence.
  • 4. Strategic Planning GOAL ONE Prepare Students for Success in Their Education, Career and Life
  • 5. Strategic Planning Goal One Focus Statement This goal focuses primarily on the General Studies curriculum and Student Services. The General Studies curriculum is the foundation for learning in the major and minor, as well as for success in careers and a commitment to lifelong learning. Student Services offers essential programs and initiatives that contribute to student success.
  • 6. Strategic Planning This goal also includes Admission, Orientation, Placement, Testing, Retention Efforts, Advising, Curricular and Co-curricular activities, as well as Class Scheduling. This goal provides the basic skills needed to succeed in life; it is the “generic” part of the degree and affects all matriculated students. Objectives supporting this planning goal should include developing students as independent learners.
  • 7. Strategic Planning GOAL TWO Provide a High Quality Educational Experience
  • 8. Strategic Planning Goal Two Focus Statement This goal focuses on education in the major, minor, concentration, or licensure, with an emphasis on establishing and maintaining the quality of the majors. Student services are an important element in this goal, offering activities, programs, and services essential to high quality education. This goal must include objectives that mandate regular and thoughtful assessing of programs, initiatives, and activities, and continuous improvement based on the results of assessment.
  • 9. Strategic Planning This goal includes needs for faculty, staff, space, equipment, library, accreditation efforts, professional development, academic advising, career-planning, operating budgets, and other resources required for the delivery of pre-eminent academic programs and services.
  • 10. Strategic Planning GOAL THREE Engage, Collaborate and Work with the Community
  • 11. Strategic Planning Goal Three Focus Statement This goal focuses primarily on initiatives and programs that move Metro State into the community and bring the community to the campus. The work of the President and of Institutional Advancement is critical to this theme. The focus is external to the college, involving all the constituencies that Metro State serves and its partnerships and collaborations.
  • 12. Strategic Planning Increasing cooperative education, internships, and service learning can be included here although they are commonly a part of the quality educational experience in the major. Faculty and staff service activities, both in the community and for professional organizations, are also important aspects of this goal.
  • 13. Strategic Planning GOAL FOUR Embrace and Promote Diversity
  • 14. Strategic Planning Definition of Diversity The college takes a pro-active and balanced approach to diversity. It supports and values diversity in all its forms** in a teaching and learning community marked by mutual respect, inclusion and cooperation. Diversity will be reflected in the curriculum, in activities of the college and in the composition of faculty, staff, and students. **Diversity embraces age, race, gender, ethnicity, national origin, disabilities, sexual orientation, religion, as well as intellectual differences.
  • 15. Strategic Planning Goal Four Focus Statement This goal focuses on the members of the academic community, faculty, students, and staff, and the ways in which the college reflects the communities and the students it serves. It includes diversity in the curriculum, and activities for reaching objectives such as becoming a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) as soon as possible.
  • 16. Strategic Planning Considerations must include how to recruit and retain high quality faculty, staff, and students. This involves establishing a culture of acceptance and inclusion and providing incentives for diverse groups, including people of color, to join the Metro State community.
  • 17. College Goals and Administrative Leadership Goal #1: Prepare Students for Success in their Education, Career and Life.
