Vision 2.0 Strategic Plan

Building on Our Past. Designing for Our Future

 

 

 

  

  

Lorain County Community College’s Board of Trustees adopted the new Vision 2.0 plan in January 2013, including the previous mission statement, a new vision statement, updated values, and six new strategic priorities that will guide the College’s developmental strategies for the next five to seven years.

The plan was developed by a 100-member Vision 2.0 Council, which was comprised of external community and regional stakeholders, faculty, staff, and students and culminated in 6-month process of listening and learning sessions.

“Vision 2.0 creates the future directions for LCCC and represents the collective input from those we serve in helping to shape and create priorities that will enhance our community’s educational attainment and competitiveness needed for this knowledge economy,” comments LCCC President Roy A. Church.

The Vision 2.0 Council met four times from April through June 2012 to learn about trends influencing the future of the College in the areas of education, economy, community, and culture, and to review and refine the ideas developed through the listening and learning phase.

The collaborative process resulted in the Vision 2.0 Council’s recommendation for the mission statement, vision statement, values, and six strategic priorities.
