  July 2, 2003 Strategic Planning Survey 2002

In response to a question of an Iowa State Board of Education member, the Division of Community Colleges and Workforce Preparation within the Iowa Department of Education, queried the membership of the National Council of State Directors of Community Colleges to determine the extent to which other states have statewide community college strategic plans, if funding is tied to achieving the objectives of the plan, and if their goals, objectives, or initiatives are related to non-traditional program enrollments, to the recruitment enrollment, and success of minority students, or to the recruitment, hiring, or promotion of women and minorities. 

Twenty-five (25) states responded to the query; 13 of the responding states have a statewide strategic plan for the community colleges.  In only two of these states is funding tied to achieving the objectives of the plan (Georgia and Missouri).  Ten (10) states have goals related to enhancing enrollment in non-traditional programs. Nine (9) states have  goals related to the recruitment, enrollment, and success of minority students; seven (7) of the responding states have goals related to the recruitment, hiring, or promotion of women and minorities. (These responses include Iowa, January 2003.)

The National Council of State Directors of Community Colleges is an affiliated council of the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC).  The council provides a forum for the exchange of information about developments, trends, and problems in state systems of community colleges.  

Through our affiliation with AACC, we also strive to affect national legislation that impacts our colleges and state agencies.

This is the only Council that represents the collective interest of state agencies and state boards of community colleges.  This council is a valuable forum to help state directors deal with the changes in attitude and policies towards community colleges at the international, federal, state and local levels.  We will share information and learn lessons from each other to better serve the interests of our institutions in the coming years.
