Strategic Planning 2020-21

The Southwestern Mission and Strategic Plan are undergoing evaluation and assessment in accordance with the new accreditation standards.  An inclusive review process is underway during 2020-21.  A refined Mission and a new Strategic Plan are two components of the ongoing institutional effectiveness process.  Look for the updated Strategic Plan in the near future!

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)
