Strategic planning at Allen Community College is a process by which the college provides a framework for operational planning. This ensures that the college can fulfill its mission, vision, and the needs of its stakeholders.
On five Thursday evenings in March and April of 2017, individuals representing the Allen student body, business and industry, trustees, faculty, management/supervisory staff, and administration met as a team to develop a strategic plan for 2017-2022. During the process, which included using both small teams of eight and the entire team as one group, an environmental scan and information regarding the college was presented, a review and revision of the Mission Statement and Vision Statement was conducted, a S.W.O.T (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) analysis was completed, and the previous Strategic Plan for 2012-2017 was reviewed. Using the above information as a background, the teams developed and prioritized goals for the next five years with objectives to meet those goals. Suggested specific strategies that would help in accomplishing the objectives were recorded and prioritized by the team. Target dates for initiating action on objectives and assignment of the position or positions responsible for completion of the objective were then made.
