Four major goals have been established for the
College. These goals represent the foundation
elements that are critical to future
institutional success.

Strategic Planning
GOAL ONE Prepare Students for Success in The
ir Education, Career and Life

Strategic Planning
  • Goal One Focus Statement
  • This goal focuses primarily on the General
    Studies curriculum and Student Services. The
    General Studies curriculum is the foundation for
    learning in the major and minor, as well as for
    success in careers and a commitment to lifelong
    learning. Student Services offers essential
    programs and initiatives that contribute to
    student success.

Strategic Planning
This goal also includes Admission, Orientation,
Placement, Testing, Retention Efforts, Advising,
Curricular and Co-curricular activities, as well
as Class Scheduling. This goal provides the ba
sic skills needed to succeed in life it is the
generic part of the degree and affects all
matriculated students. Objectives supporting this
planning goal should include developing students
as independent learners.

GOAL TWO Provide a High Quality Educational E
xperience

Strategic Planning
Goal Two Focus Statement This goal focuses on
education in the major, minor, concentration, or
licensure, with an emphasis on establishing and
maintaining the quality of the majors. Student
services are an important element in this goal,
offering activities, programs, and services
essential to high quality education. This goal
must include objectives that mandate regular and
thoughtful assessing of programs, initiatives,
and activities, and continuous improvement based
on the results of assessment.
10
11
Strategic Planning
This goal includes needs for faculty, staff,
space, equipment, library, accreditation efforts,
professional development, academic advising,
career-planning, operating budgets, and other
resources required for the delivery of
pre-eminent academic programs and services.
11
12
Strategic Planning
GOAL THREE Engage, Collaborate and Work with
the Community
12
13
Strategic Planning
Goal Three Focus Statement This goal focuses p
rimarily on initiatives and programs that move
Metro State into the community and bring the
community to the campus. The work of the
President and of Institutional Advancement is
critical to this theme. The focus is external to
the college, involving all the constituencies
that Metro State serves and its partnerships and
collaborations.
13
14
Strategic Planning
Increasing cooperative education, internships,
and service learning can be included here
although they are commonly a part of the quality
educational experience in the major. Faculty and
staff service activities, both in the community
and for professional organizations, are also
important aspects of this goal.
14
15
Strategic Planning
GOAL FOUR Embrace and Promote Diversity
15
16
Strategic Planning Definition of Diversity
The college takes a pro-active and balanced
approach to diversity. It supports and
valuesdiversity in all its forms in a teaching
and learning community marked by mutual respect,
inclusion and cooperation. Diversity will
bereflected in the curriculum, in activities of
the college and in the composition of faculty,
staff, and students.Diversity embraces age,
race, gender, ethnicity, national origin,
disabilities, sexual orientation, religion, as
well as intellectualdifferences.
16
17
Strategic Planning
Goal Four Focus Statement This goal focuses on
the members of the academic community, faculty,
students, and staff, and the ways in which the
college reflects the communities and the students
it serves. It includes diversity in the
curriculum, and activities for reaching
objectives such as becoming a Hispanic Serving
Institution (HSI) as soon as possible.
17
18
Strategic Planning
Considerations must include how to recruit and
retain high quality faculty, staff, and students.
This involves establishing a culture of
acceptance and inclusion and providing incentives
for diverse groups, including people of color, to
join the Metro State community.

Strategic Planning
Plans are dynamic documents that are constantly
reviewed and adjusted according to current
circumstances and needs. In the past, strategi
c plan documents failed to provide a perpetual
roadmap that was constantly revisited.
20
21
Strategic Planning
Grassroots input is essential
at all levels of the College All personnel are
encouraged to share their ideas and to engage in
the planning process Opportunity to share in th
e development of Metro States future

Obstacles and Opportunities Denise
Schuette
Obstacles? Of course there are obstacles. If
there werent obstacles, wed already be there!
There isnt a yes, but that doesnt contain
a gift with it. The person that comes with the
yes, but is the same person that has the
intuition to come with a solution.
-Eliyahu Goldratt in Beyond the Goal
34
35
Overcoming Obstacles
  • Actively solicit and identify obstacles and
    barriers to implementing plans and achieving
    goals
  • Obstacles mentioned or implied multiple times -
    identify and address as college-wide

    that must be undertaken to overcome the obstacle
