North Florida Community College has begun preparing their new strategic process for the coming months. This plan outlines NFCC’s process for determining the strategies they will use in order to advance the college in the future.
The staff at NFCC request that everyone, whether they are staff, students or simply community members to please take part in this survey to gather information to help them begin the new strategic plan. The community plays a huge role in the daily activities at NFCC and the community’s feedback is essential to the success of this plan. The survey can be found at https:// www.surveymonkey.com/s/52RR5W3.
Currently the plan has seven goals and 26 activities that will help the college meet these goals. The introduction to the 2007-2010 plan states that, “Strategic planning at North Florida Community College is an ongoing process meant to provide a framework for planning by divisions, departments, and individuals. The plan consists of seven goals and 26 objectives that are interrelated and tied to the College’s mission. These goals and objectives were developed to provide the foundation for a three-year planning cycle.”
The current Vision provided in the outline states, “Our vision for North Florida Community College is to be a vibrant educational community serving rural North Florida, including the counties of Hamilton, Jefferson, Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee and Taylor, and beyond. We will offer a student-centered faculty and staff who embrace diversity in a friendly and inclusive learning environment. The college will provide technologically advanced educational opportunities in response to the community’s need for quality, affordable, and accessible programs. The College will partner with business, industry, community and educational institutions to promote the economic and community development of our region.”
The current Mission reads, “North Florida Community College provides quality teaching and learning opportunities for individual and community development in a changing society.” And their Motto is, “Our Mission: YOU.”
