Next Steps A Situation Analysis needs to be compiled that demonstrates the trends higher education that will face over the next six years and how this plan responds to those trends. A series of focus groups need to be done with prospective students, current students and alumni for appropriate fit. A Metric Team will be created to articulate how we will measure the strategic plan. A Financial Planning Model has been built to model what we need to do to fund the goals and initiatives.
Next Steps Centenary Colleges graphic arts students are working on an emblem that will best explain the vision for the strategic plan. After the students have completed the emblem, we will allow the entire college community to vote on which one they like best. Thanks to Gary Caal and all the hard work he is doing with his students to meet this goal.
Strategic Plan in Action Through careful financial modeling and trend analysis, the President with Executive Staff will identify which initiatives will be commissioned, how they will be measured, and what resources will be needed. An Executive Staff member will own the initiative and work with the VP of Strategic Implementation to create a project charter and project plan for execution. Every two years, the community will review the accomplishments over the past two years and examine the next two years in order to make adjustments as needed.
