3 Introduction The Strategic Plan builds upon the work of the Strategic Plan. The 2009 plan refined existing college goals, articulated objectives, and developed performance measures (with targets) for each of the college-wide goals. Yearly reports on the performance measures were provided to the college community and the District Board of Trustees. College units used the document as part of the annual budget request process in attempting to close identified gaps between a performance measure and its target. Furthermore, each year college employees were asked to respond to how well they thought SJR State was achieving its objectives. The Strategic Plan has a very similar structure to that of the previous plan with the plan consisting of the College s mission statement, vision, and college-wide goals. Each college-wide goal has objectives and performance measures associated with it. The development process used by the College is summarized as follows: Review/revise mission statement Review college-wide data sources including SJR State Strategic Plan reports and focus group summaries Review current Florida Department of Education and Florida College System Strategic Plans Revise/rewrite college vision statement and college-wide goals Formulate objectives for each college-wide goal Formulate performance indicators and targets for each college-wide goal As one of 28 Florida College System (FCS) institutions the College ensures that its Strategic Plan aligns with Florida State Board of Education goals, Florida State Board of Education priorities for postsecondary students, and Florida College System goals. Florida State Board of Education Goals 1. Highest Student Achievement 2. Seamless Articulation and Maximum Access 3. Skilled Workforce and Economic Development 4. Quality Efficient Services Priorities for Postsecondary Students 1. Improve College Readiness and Success 2. Expand and Maintain Access 3. Prepare Students for Careers Florida College System Goals 1. Expand and Maintain Access 2. Enhance Distance Learning 3. Increase College Readiness and Success 4. Prepare for Careers St. Johns River State College Strategic Plan Page 1

4 Institutional Effectiveness and Strategic Planning Framework (Simplified) St. Johns River State College Strategic Plan Page 2

5 Planning and Evaluation Process All institutional effectiveness activities at St. Johns River State College are carried out with the overarching goal of evaluating performance against mission. Specifically the College aims to (1) evaluate its programs, policies, procedures, and services, and (2) use the results of those evaluations to improve the aforementioned. All instructional program evaluations must include the evaluation of student learning outcomes. Strategic Planning St. Johns River State College currently uses a three-year cycle for strategic planning and a one-year cycle for operational planning. The following framework is used for strategic planning and management: The College s current mission is re-examined and revisions are formulated with consideration of changing internal and external factors such as policies, regulations, statutes, population changes, economic considerations, technology, as well as student and community needs; A College Vision Statement and College-wide Goals are developed and agreed upon by the Institutional Planning Committee (IPC). The IPC is made up of the President, Executive Vice President, vice presidents, provosts, Chief Information Officer, and a faculty representative. Each college goal has a number of performance indicators associated with it. The development process encompasses a thorough review of college-wide data sources including existing Strategic Plan Update Reports and Institutional Effectiveness Reports as well as a review of current Florida Department of Education and Florida College System Strategic Plans; The mission, vision, and college-wide goals are circulated to stakeholders for input and the resultant strategic plan is taken to the District Board of Trustees for approval. Operational Unit Planning and Evaluation Operational planning and evaluation occurs at the unit level on an annual basis. The following framework is used for unit planning and evaluation: Both instructional and non-instructional units use the strategic plan to develop annual unit plans. To aid the units a Strategic Plan Update Report is produced each January. Unit plans are reviewed by the vice presidents and are monitored by the College s Institutional Planning Committee and the Vice President for Research and Institutional Effectiveness. Each planning unit develops a mission and a set of unit goals that are based on the College mission statement and College-wide goals. Annual expected outcomes (annual initiatives) and an accompanying assessment plan, including assessment methods and criteria for success, are developed along with any budgetary needs. Each expected outcome must relate to a unit goal and/or program outcome. All instructional units must include the evaluation of student learning outcomes. As part of the annual budget preparation activities, units are asked to consult the latest Strategic Plan Update Report and identify strategies that could potentially close identified gaps. Those requiring additional budget are included in the College s budget request system. St. Johns River State College Strategic Plan Page 3

6 All units assess 3-5 goals/program outcomes per year. The analysis of assessment results and evidence of the use of these results to improve programs/services and/or student learning must occur on an annual basis. An annual timeline for planning and evaluation activities as well as an institutional effectiveness flowchart are found below. Planning and Evaluation Annual Timeline Date August By September 30 January February March March April-May June By July 31 By August 31 Activity Office of Research and Institutional Effectiveness finalizes, publishes, and distributes the annual SJR State Fact Book and College Goals and Objectives to the planning units. Planning units submit annual plans (annual outcomes) via the electronic planning and assessment system. Operational units implement their annual plans through July. Office of Research and Institutional Effectiveness publishes the Strategic Plan Update Report. Units conduct SWOT analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats) to identify issues and special needs as they prepare their budget requests for next year. As part of this analysis, units are asked to consult the latest Strategic Plan Update Report and identify strategies that could potentially close identified gaps. Those requiring additional budget are included in the College s budget request system. Units submit budget requests to the appropriate vice president. Vice presidents prioritize budget requests for their units and submit them via the budget planning system. The Institutional Planning Committee/Executive Council or a subcommittee thereof reviews budget requests and makes recommendations to the President. District Board of Trustees reviews and approves the annual operating budget. All program reviews are complete. Operational units submit completed annual plans (annual outcomes) via the electronic planning and assessment system. St. Johns River State College Strategic Plan Page 4
