Presidentís Conference Room
Those present were: Joe Badgley, Pam Braden, Jack Simpkin, Dan Williamson, Curt Fulmer, Connie Dziagwa, Tom Yencha, David Cumberledge, David Bell, David White, Cindy Kelley, and Patsy Bee.
Dr. Badgley called the meeting to order in the absence of President Gnage and presented Council members with the agenda. The first item of discussion was:
Progress on Implementation of Strategic Plan
Dr. Badgley asked each area to report on their progress in implementing the strategic plan. He started by reporting that the academic area regularly addresses areas of the strategic plan at Academic Council and Division meetings. It was also reported that a lot of effort has been focused on the Plan in areas of Student Services, Jackson County Center, Institutional Advancement, and other areas of the college.
Dr. Badgley explained to new Council members in student government and physical facilities the importance of each of their areas in completing the goals and objectives of the Strategic Plan.
Review of the Objectives of the Strategic Plan and Review of Index Card Survey.
Members of Council were given copies of the index card survey that President Gnage conducted during her In-Service presentation and was asked to review and make any recommendations regarding objectives that may need to be added based on survey comments. It was suggested that perhaps a statement should be added noting that everything we do is centered around teaching/learning. Council members will review the survey and discuss further at the next meeting.
Other sub-plans that must be completed:
The following updated reports were provided:
Dr. Badgley reported that the Master Plan is in the process of being developed by the Facilities Master Plan Group, and the Academic Council is in process of developing the Academic Plan.
Tom Yencha reported that the Enrollment Management Plan is being developed by the Enrollment Management Council.
Connie Dziagwa reported that her area is in the process of developing a Marketing Plan.
Dave White reported that development of a Safety Plan was discussed at the first Safety Committee meeting this morning.
Connecting the dots with budget.
Jack Simpkin noted that the budget is already reflecting the Plan as a guide. He noted that salary increases will impact this yearís budget. The next budget cycle will be next spring, and funds will be shifted at that time.
Dr. Badgley noted that the Planning Council will meet this year to work on the Plan and make sure it is being implemented.
Cindy Kelley noted that Wood County Schools was so impressed with our Strategic Plan that they are developing their plan using it as a guide. Dr. Badgley noted that they requested President Gnage to serve on their Strategic Plan Committee.
With no further business to be discussed, the meeting adjourned.
