Strategic Planning 2020-27

Southwestern is currently undergoing a strategic planning process for 2022-2027. The process started in April 2021 with a comprehensive environmental scan to take into account the changing nature of education and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the course of 2021, staff met in small and large groups led by the President's Office and the Office of Institutional Effectiveness to decide on strategic priorities for 2022-2027. Action planning is currently underway and will result in a Strategic Plan before the end of this academic year. 

Southwestern's accreditation was re-affirmed by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) at their June 2020 meeting.  As part of the ongoing institutional effectiveness process, Southwestern is reviewing the Mission and Strategic Plan to align with the new accreditation standards.  The College is committed to "an ongoing and systematic evaluation and planning process to inform and refine its effectiveness, assign resources, and improve student learning and achievement." (Standard 1.B.1)  The Strategic Plan is one way "the institution provides evidence that its planning process is inclusive and offers opportunities for comment by appropriate constituencies, allocates necessary resources, and leads to improvement of institutional effectiveness." (Standard 1.B.3)
