Following an 18 month strategic planning process that included in depth research, data analysis, and engagement with the Board of Trustees, community and campus constituents, a Strategic Plan for 2022 – 2031 has been finalized and was adopted on Nov. 18, 2021.
The MCC Reimagined Strategic Plan 2022 – 2031 will utilize the Balanced Scorecard strategic plan framework. This ensures all key stakeholder perspectives are being considered. Those perspectives are:
- Students, Alumni & Community,
- Resource Management, and
MCC Reimagined also includes a revised Mission statement and new vision statement along with newly created organizational value statements. The strategic plan’s four strategic themes and 14 organizational goals will provide the road map to reaching the College’s desired future state – its vision.
The decision to switch from a 5-year plan to a 10-year plan allows MCC to more realistically set bold goals that will truly reimagine MCC. MCC will conduct a thorough five-year check up on the plan to ensure it remains responsive and relevant to MCC’s evolving needs.
At its November meeting, the MCC Board of Trustees voted to adopt MCC Reimagined, the College’s 2022-2031 Strategic Plan. The plan consists of four specific strategic themes that the College will focus its efforts on over the next decade and we refer to these as MCC’s Four Key E’s:
- Emerge as a first choice
- Evolve for maximum impact on education and workforce
- Embrace all
- Elevate student, employee and community engagement
Within the umbrella of these four themes are thirteen specific organizational goals that the College will work collectively to achieve.
In an effort to ensure all stakeholder perspectives are reflected in the MCC Reimagined Strategic Plan, the College has opted to utilize the Balanced Scorecard strategic plan framework. This framework allows the College to view its organizational goals from four different perspectives to ensure the needs of all stakeholders are addressed:
- Students, Alumni & Community
- Resource Management
The MCC Reimagined Strategic Plan will guide us in reaching our vision, which is the desired future state of the College. Throughout the strategic planning process, it became evident that a refresh to MCC’s vision was needed to more appropriately represent the College’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. MCC’s new vision is:
MCC will be the Kansas City region’s college of choice where all are encouraged to learn, discover and engage.
The Board of Trustees also opted to adopt a new mission statement and corresponding values. The College’s new values are Excellence, Learning, Equity, People, Integrity. The College’s mission, or what drives us, is now:
Preparing students, serving communities, creating opportunities for all.
The MCC Reimagined Strategic Plan will launch in January 2022.
