Strategic Planning Committee

Outcome 2

2004 Strategic Planning Outcome 2 Report

Engagement Activities

(number of feedback loops, sessions held, meetings, etc.)

I’m not sure what you mean about feedback loops in this context. The Committee proposed definitions of the outcome components and closed the loop with these definitions by reviewing them with over 200 people. The comments of these people were incorporated into the final definitions of the components of Outcome 2.

The Committee worked with the Sponsor of Outcome 1 to prepare the AQIP materials on Question 1 pertaining to Student Learning. This loop was also closed as the collected materials were incorporated into the document that was filed with AQIP. 

I do not have precise numbers of meetings held, but over 20 meetings were held with units, the committee, Faculty Organization, and among the sponsors of Outcome 1 and Outcome 2. In addition, Outcome 2 was discussed at 2 Strategic Planning Retreats, the monthly sponsors meetings, in meetings with the Chancellor, in meetings with George Miga, the consultant, and with Jeff Lorber, the Cabinet coordinator.

Number of People Responding

I do not have precise totals. But over 200 people reviewed and commented on the definitions. Every academic unit at a faculty and staff meeting commented, and Student Services responded.

Range of People Responding

(example:  students, faculty, staff, etc.)

The people responding included students, faculty, staff, and community members.

Summary of Actual Outcome Achieved

In 2004, our goal was as follows:

By December 31, 2004, academic programs and relevant support have identified working definitions of the following:

  • preparing students for lifelong learning,
  • preparing students for ethical practices,
  • preparing students to develop successful careers, and
  • preparing students for effective citizenship.

Results of Outcome


This goal was accomplished and the working definitions are as follows:

  1. Lifelong learning

    To be prepared for lifelong learning, students are given the opportunity to engage in learning activities and are provided learning strategies that inspire the ability and willingness to learn throughout their lives.

  2. Ethical Practices 

    To be prepared to use ethical practices, students are given opportunities to gain knowledge and engage in learning activities that enable them to develop awareness and concern for how their actions affect other people. 

  3. Successful Careers

    To be prepared for a successful career, students are offered degree programs and career support services that prepare them for employment, and enable them to pursue continuing professional development.

  4. Effective Citizenship

    To be prepared for effective citizenship, students are provided opportunities to become active citizens in their community, through volunteerism or public service.
