Building on our Past. Designing our Future.
Lorain County Community College embarked on a new strategic visioning process called Vision 2.0. The College employed large-scale civic engagement with the Lorain County public to generate ideas for our community’s “College of the Future.” New programs and services will focus on opportunities and challenges associated with the county’s changing economic and educational climate.
Vision 2.0 follows Vision 2015, which defined strategic goals and initiatives put forth as a result of the 2006-2007 strategic visioning process. Ninety-five percent of the Vision 2015 goals had been met so it was time to redefine the community’s goals and priorities for the future of Lorain County Community College.
The four phases of the Vision 2.0 process
I. Listening and Learning
October 2011 – March 2012
The Listening and Learning phase identified over 80 external constituent groups to gather building block ideas for the Lorain County Community College of the Future.
II. Building the Vision
April 2012 – June 2012
A Vision 2.0 Council, comprised of internal and external constituents, reviewed empirical and data analysis of the future trends and issues for higher education.
III. Sharing the Vision
July 2012– December 2012
This was an internal process of confirming institutional strategic priorities and finalizing the list of possible initiatives.
IV. Acting on the Vision
Teams are assigned to monitor each initiative.
