Strategic Planning

What do our students need to be successful? How can we ensure that our academic programs meet the needs of our workforce and are aligned with the economic opportunities that exist in the region? What are the best investments HCC can make with its resources? These are just some of the questions we will explore as we embark on a year-long strategic planning process.

Strategic planning provides us with the opportunity to assess our strengths and weaknesses, examine our role in the community, and develop an aspirational vision for the future of HCC. In the coming months we will hold a series of events and activities designed to engage all members of the community-students, faculty, staff, alumni, board members and community stakeholders-in this process.  I hope you will join us in whatever way you find most meaningful.  In addition to your participation in events, we invite you to share your thoughts and ideas with us through the form provided on this page. This is an exciting time for HCC, and I encourage you to join us as we write the next chapter of our collective story.

Warmly,
Christina Royal

CampusWorks will support HCC by providing the following services:

  • Plan and facilitate board and community workshops, Futures Summit, Community Focus Groups and Scan to Plan sessions
  • Develop SWOT (Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) survey 
  • Draft Mission, Vision & Values Survey
