Strategic planning at Moberly Area Community College is a dynamic effort involving constituents of the College. The planning process for the current strategic plan began in September 2017 and continued throughout the 2017-18 academic year. The planning cycle culminated in August 2018 with approval from the Board of Trustees and implementation of MACC’s 2018-2021 Strategic Plan.
The Strategic Planning Committee invited employees to give feedback at in-person planning sessions, through an anonymous survey, and by email. Surveys were also distributed to alumni, area educators, and business/community organizations and partners. Other sources of input included student and employee survey results, relevant institutional data, and regular interaction with various stakeholders. The review process also considered national, state, and local trends in education, as well as social, economic, and political factors that impact the College.
The format of the 2018-2021 Strategic Plan was redesigned to improve how progress would be monitored. Key Performance Indicators that align with college goals will be tracked on a Scorecard, and twice a year the strategic plan work groups will prepare and present oral progress reports to the Strategic Plan Oversight Committee. Updates will be shared college-wide and with the Board of Trustees.
