Strategic Plan

 Transforming together

We’re building a community of partnerships

The 2012-2017 Strategic Plan is a GPS for strengthening our community by providing opportunities for people to improve their lives through education.  Please note that I didn’t refer to this as Cumberland County College’s Strategic Plan.  No, this plan is the result of a collaborative effort by college and community leaders.

This is our Strategic Plan. 

We began the strategic planning process about two years ago.  And last September, local leaders in varied fields visited Cumberland County College to attend a day-long strategic planning assembly to share their ideas for moving the college and community forward. 

As they say, the community and college leaders brought their “A game” to the assembly, and we utilized their thoughts and advice to prepare the 2012-2017 Strategic Plan, which was unanimously approved by CCC’s Board of Trustees in December.  The three Directions of the plan are listed on the adjacent page and the ideas generated at the assembly, titled Participant Perspectives, are listed on the Directions pages. 

This is a great Strategic Plan, but this is just the beginning of our journey.  We must work together to transform the ideas generated into real, vibrant programs and services. 

Since the college’s and county’s futures are intertwined, we need our leaders to continue sharing their expertise and time as we move forward as a team, preparing residents for success in the 21st century.

I’m privileged to send heart-felt thanks to the scores of dedicated people who played a role in producing the 2012-2017 Strategic Plan.  You have demonstrated that all of us can do much more than one of us.
