About the Strategic Plan

Planning at all levels of the college is highly participatory. In keeping with the College’s culture of inclusiveness and transparency, KCC’s planning processes offer widespread opportunities for input by appropriate constituencies. From advisory boards for academic programs to shared governance and strategic planning, public and employee participation is highly sought after.  

Like most other plans at the College, the strategic planning process solicits extensive public, Board of Education, and KCC employee input. The College’s strategic plan serves as the unifying element that takes into account the needs of the community, the mission of the College, efforts of the College’s internal departments, and the budgeting process.

KCC is in the third cycle of its current strategic planning series. The guiding principles for KCC's Strategic Plan are:

  • to be highly inclusive of the public and all college departments,
  • to give all departments a sense of meaning and forward vision,
  • to be integrated with the budget process,
  • to be a grass-roots, department-centered system, and
  • remain a vibrant, living document at the forefront of all College activities. 

Developing each Strategic Plan includes public workshops with campus tours for business leaders, political leaders, the National Guard at various locations, K-12 districts, and government agencies. Additional work sessions are held for all campus departments and the Board of Education. Over time, the location of our participants has grown from local, to regional, to national.
