Strategic planning at Moberly Area Community College is an ongoing activity involving all constituents of the College: faculty, staff, students, administration, and members of the community. A Strategic Planning Committee, consisting of faculty, staff, and administrators across MACC locations is formed to ensure that all constituents have an avenue for input into the strategic planning process. This committee is responsible for organizing and directing planning efforts, and formalizing an official Strategic Plan for approval by the Board of Trustees.
Throughout the strategic planning process, faculty, staff, administration, students, area educators, adjunct faculty, alumni, college advisory boards, and community members are given the opportunity to have input. Other sources utilized throughout the planning process include Mission and Vision documentation, academic and support services assessment data, and regular interaction with students, faculty, staff, and community members. The review process also considers national, state, and local which impact the College.
Results of the above planning strategies are reviewed by MACC administration, which helps to establish priorities for inclusion in the Strategic Plan, suggest corrective actions, assign implementation to specific staff, and identify resources needed. The finalized Strategic Plan document is ultimately presented to the Board of Trustees for review and approval. After formal approval, the President distributes the plan college-wide and implementation begins. Semi-annual progress reports ensure the completion of plan objectives in a timely fashion. The President shares broad progress updates twice a year with the college community.
MACC’s strategic planning process is perpetual in nature. The planning cycle for the next plan (2018-2021) began in September 2017. The new plan will be introduced to the college in August 2018.
The President is ultimately responsible for the implementation of the goals and strategies in the Strategic Plan. Although the President is not indicated as having primary responsibility for each strategy, those persons assigned primary responsibility are required to report to the President or his designee on progress toward strategies and goals.
