With the start of a brand new year, it seems an opportune time to reflect and consider the future for the College. Later this week we will be conducting a Strategic Planning Summit…two intensive days of examining where we are and where we want to go next as an organization. How invigorating! When you stop and think that we impact the lives of almost 50,000 people each year through a wide range of educational programs, having a good plan for addressing needs on that scale is of paramount importance.
As we go through this planning process, I will definitely be blogging about different elements of the plan that takes shape over the next several months and asking for your feedback. But let me begin by posing a very general question as some initial food for thought. What is your vision for Fox Valley Technical College? Where do you see the College about five years from now—what are our opportunities, areas that need more focus or attention, or key strategies that will allow us to provide our students and employers with a competitive edge? How can we be of better service to students, employers, and the communities we serve? I would love to hear your thoughts. Help shape our future.
