Creating a Better College - Strategic Enrollment Management and the Strategic Plan

9/26/2013

IMG_8296.JPGGood things come to those who research thoroughly, plan accordingly and execute decisively.   

During the month of October, the College will be presenting our brand new five-year Strategic Plan to the community in three open forum events. The Plan outlines nine priorities, 35 strategies and has already prompted some very exciting discussions and commitments around here. But our work has only just begun.   

Enrollment is one of the Plan’s top priorities under which we will be developing and executing a Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) plan to take effect during the 2014-15 academic year. To be clear, an SEM plan is more than just more students; SEM is a comprehensive process that encompasses everything from growing signature programs to recruiting top students to managing student success to helping alumni achieve their career goals. It is designed to guide a sustained and healthy increase in student and institutional success.   

In short, this new SEM plan will keep TCC moving forward.

What does all this mean for you? Among many other things:

For students, your student experience will receive a facelift – applying, orientation, enrollment, career planning, learning resources, co-curricular activities, and graduation, these and other student touch points will be streamlined and improved.     

For faculty, academic programs will be assessed for need and opportunity, advising and career counseling will be refined, and we will be developing or expanding strategies for early alert and intervention. We will also plan for better professional development and technology implementation. We want to make sure our instructors have the resources they need for our students to succeed.   

For staff, we will foster a culture of evaluation and feedback from all resource areas so each staff member has the tools to identify areas of improvement for everything from the application process to record keeping to campus communications.                     

For our community, this will mean TCC will continue to remain relevant and useful in today’s ever-changing education landscape.   

SEM is just part of our overall Strategic Plan. To hear more about our other priorities, please join us one of the three Strategic Plan events:         

  • Wakulla County on October 1 at 5:30 p.m. at the Wakulla Center      
  • Leon County on October 21 at 5:30 p.m. in the Student Union Ballroom on TCC’s Main Campus
  • Gadsden County on October 30 at 5:30 p .m. at the Florida Public Safety Institution

A college is more than a collection of buildings or an online presence. A college is a community—a group of people with the same goal: to learn and to prepare for the future. And a great college is more than just a destination—it is a partner in the success of each student.
