DEVELOPMENT OF THE 2018-2021 STRATEGIC PLAN
In October 2018, the UCC Board of Education approved a new strategic plan for the College. The approval came after months of collective work with input from College employees, students, and community members. The draft plan was reviewed and revised multiple times before the final plan was presented to the Board.
The new strategic plan serves as a road map for achieving the College’s vision for the future. The plan helps fulfill the College’s mission, reflects the College’s values and core themes, and provides measurable goals for the next three years.
Umpqua Community College will be a model for educational innovation, empowering all students to contribute to an ever-changing, diverse world with confidence, competence, and compassion.
Umpqua Community College transforms lives and enriches communities.
Goal 3: Support student success from recruitment through program progression, completion of programs, and transfer or entry to the workforce.
Each year, UCC derives strategic priorities from the Strategic Plan. Priorities are adjusted at the beginning of each academic year, based on the results of the annual review of the strategic plan, and are used to inform the subsequent year’s tactical plans, operational plans, and resource allocation.
Strategic Plan Annual Reports
The Strategic Plan is monitored on a monthly basis by the Senior Leadership Team and the Provost’s Council. Progress is formally reviewed mid-year and at the end of the year by UCC’s Strategic Plan Oversight Committee (SPOC). SPOC analyzes progress on strategic priorities, utilizing assessment data from academic and support areas of operation plus institutional indicator data, and makes recommendations for improvement and new priorities.
