Lake Land Invites Community to Participate in Strategic Planning Survey | Education
MATTOON – Community members are invited to ask, “How can Lake Land College serve you?” And participate in a survey to help the college determine the goals of its next strategic plan.
Lake Land said the questionnaire serves as the basis for a year-long planning development process that the college’s strategic planning committee announced in early September.
The committee kicked off the process by releasing a trend analysis report on state, national and global trends affecting higher education, as well as demographics for the Lake Land College District and the communities it serves. The report and summary are posted on the college’s website at lakelandcollege.edu/créer-notre-avenir.
As a community college, Lake Land serves all or part of 15 counties and 31 school districts. It is the second largest geographic district in Illinois and is roughly the same size as Connecticut.
Led by Lake Land College Chief of Staff Jean Anne Grunloh, the work of the Strategic Planning Committee in 2021-2022 will set the stage for the next four-year planning cycle for fiscal years 2023-2026. The college’s fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30.
“Lake Land College is excited to plan for the future and create a strategic plan that serves our next generation of students,” said Grunloh. “To do this, we will implement a process that will deliberately include our internal and external stakeholders, including community members, students and staff.”
The college invited all community members, students and staff to complete a five-minute survey to help with the process of identifying goals and objectives for the next strategic plan. The survey is available at laclandcollege.edu under the About us menu / About us Links / Strategic plan.
“Our goal is to develop an innovative and adaptive strategic plan that addresses local, state, national and global trends impacting higher education and positions Lake Land to meet the needs of students and the workforce in a post-pandemic environment, ”Lake Land President Josh Bullock said. . “To achieve this goal, we need to hear from community members, business leaders, alumni, current students and future Lakers.”
