Strategic Planning

Strategic planning is creating a vision of the future and managing toward that vision. It’s a process for aligning short-term decisions with long-term goals.

Strategic planning answers three big questions:

  • Where are we today?
  • Where do we want to be in the future?
  • What should we be focused on today, in order to make it more likely we will be where we want to be tomorrow?

Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College’s strategic plan shapes and guides who we are, what we do, and why we do it, all with a focus on the future. Our strategic plan helps us achieve our long-term goals by focusing our energy, by ensuring that we are all working toward the same end, and by allowing us to assess and adjust the College’s direction in response to changes in the higher education environment. Southern’s strategic plan sets forth our reason for being, defines the critical issues, establishes a vision, sets measurable objectives, and, most importantly: prioritizes strategies for achieving our vision.
