2020 Vision: Strategic Plan 2015-2020

In spring 2014 the SFCC Board of Trustees approved an agreement with Gerke & Associates from Columbia, Missouri, to develop a collaborative strategic plan that will provide direction and goals for SFCC's future.

The Strategic Planning Team is comprised of staff, faculty, administrators, and community members. The team began meeting as a group and individually with Gene Gerke, strategic planning facilitator, to get acquainted, answer questions in order to reveal key issues and opportunities facing the college and learn about the elements and structure for a successful planning process.
Questions the team has addressed are:
  • What is currently working well at SFCC that you wish to build on in the future?
  • What is not working as well as you would like? Why not?
  • What are the key opportunities for the college today and in the future?
  • What are the top issues facing the college today?
  • What would you personally like to take away from the strategic planning process?
  • Any other comments?
  • Any questions of the facilitator?
