Strategy Forum

In the course of the accreditation cycle, the College participates in two Strategy Forums. Strategy Forums bring together teams from multiple colleges and universities. Each college’s or university’s team works on a significant continuous improvement project, which is often filed as an Action Project with HLC. Peer facilitators at the Strategy Forums assist teams with working on the continuous improvement project. The Strategy Forum provides an opportunity for the participating institutions to present their projects to other Strategy Forum attendees for feedback.

In 2010, the College’s Strategy Forum attendees identified potential Action Projects to present to the entity then known as the College Council for the council’s consideration and approval. The approved projects were then further refined into project charters. The College’s Strategy Forum attendees in 2014 worked to develop a structure for assessing student learning outcomes. That work created a foundation for the Action Project on that issue led by the College’s Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning.
