Strategic Master Plan (SMP) The driving force for all college planning. The current Strategic Master Plan lists “key” PRIORITIES for us to plan our Educational, Technology and Facility Master Plans around… THEY ARE…..
KEY STRATEGIC MASTER PLAN (SMP) PRIORITIES STUDENT SUCCESS GROWTH COMMUNITY AND BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT ORGANIZATIONAL DEVELOPMENT
SMP PRIORITY #1-Student Success LATTC’s success can best be measured by the success of our students in meeting their goals. We recognize each student has unique aspirations which can change over time. We must be ready to meet their life-long learning, career/technical, degree or university transfer goals. To embrace greater responsibility for their own success, the program elements include: 1.) Provide a basic skills training program for students not prepared for college-level study or career technical education. 2.) Design and implement a model Freshman Experience program, emphasizing Personal Development classes and Assessments to help students become clear about their career goals, aspirations, and aptitude. 3.) Assist students in transition to job placement.
SMP PRIORITY #2 - Growth We are proposing that LATTC doubles its enrollment and financial base by 2012 through a variety of new programs and approaches. While the campus will remain the hub of our educational and economic development activities, we will reach out to the local communities and connect through increased off and on-campus programs. For the next three years, the areas of focus are: 1.) Expand the LATTC Bridges to Success program. 2.) Identify and address opportunities to enhance, grow, or develop programs to meet future needs of the LATTC community. 3.) Expand and enhance distance education and off-hours course offerings and support. 4.) Increase investment in a marketing program to research and understand the evolving needs of our target markets.
SMP PRIORITY #3 -Community and Business Development We plan to work more closely with our community, including : LATTC Green initiative. As leaders in the CTE arena, we embrace the challenge of being environmental leaders. We will foster environmental leadership among our students by providing them with strong career and global citizenship opportunities. We will support our neighboring communities throughour ‘green’ initiative. Community Outreach/Satellite Programs. We plan to work more closely with our community, including piloting satellite operations in the community. We will appeal to the broad range of emerging and established residential communities, as well as the business community we serve. Business Outreach/Mobile Classroom Program. Our goal is to develop new partnerships with our educational, governmental, local community, and business stakeholders. Our partnerships will be built around innovative education and training initiatives that meet their needs in terms of time, location, methods of instruction and learning. Our mutual goal will be community and economic development.
SMP PRIORITY #4 -Organizational Development In order to achieve the first three strategic priorities, LATTC must have a strong foundation and internal capacity and infrastructure. There are three near-term areas of focus in this priority: 1.) Clarify and streamline our communication, decision-making, and shared governance processes to increase the sense of responsibility for the success of LATTC and to maximize the input of stakeholder groups, including students, faculty, staff, and the community. 2.) Simplify the internal operational policies so that all are straight forward and understandable, minimizing red tape while maintaining our legal and fiduciary responsibilities. 3.) Enhance the investment in the personal and professional development of faculty and staff.
