Designing Our Future
The Bellevue College Strategic Plan, and related Academic Master and Student Affairs plans, were developed during AY 2013-2014 through an extensive cross-college planning initiative. The year-long process involved broad representation, including input from the Board of Trustees, college leadership, faculty, exempt and classified staff, students, and community partners. The guiding metaphor for BC’s future, an arch, symbolizes the interconnections and interdependence of the major guiding plans – unified by the keystone of the 5-year Strategic Plan. The completed arch reveals a common direction towards which the college community directs its efforts.
Bellevue College’s major planning documents are designed to evolve with the changing needs of the institution. The Designing Our Future blog posts draft materials related to major planning and special projects for college-wide review and comment. To fulfill the original vision for strategic planning, the college has prepared an Annual Review of the Strategic Plan 2014-2015, which considers the ways in which we have advanced our expressed goals. As the college celebrates its 50th anniversary, we will continue planning with the success of our students as our primary motivation.
