In September 2016, the Board of Trustees launched an effort to prepare for the future of Montgomery College through development and alignment of key foundational themes. This effort, Envisioning the Future, has three themes of critical importance to the College: Financial Sustainability, Educational Excellence as Measured by Student Success, and Community Engagement. This work will form the basis of preparation for the next strategic planning process, set to launch in fiscal year 2019.
In the fall of 2016, each of these was analyzed through a SWOT process (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) and presented during public Board meetings. An additional topic—Regulatory, Legislative, and National Trends—was also analyzed as well. The SWOTs as presented during the Board meetings are available here:
- Financial Sustainability (PDF, )
- Educational Excellence (PDF, )
- Community Engagement (PDF, )
- Regulatory, Legislative, and National Trends (PDF, )
The Board of Trustees looks forward to keeping the College community apprised of its efforts through the next phases of the Envisioning the Future endeavor.
