Designing Our Future

Planning Arch Logo 9-15

The Bellevue College Strategic, Academic Master and Student Affairs plans were originally developed during 2013-2014 through an extensive cross-college planning initiative. 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. As part of this ongoing process of continuous improvement, the Strategic Plan was revised around the college’s four core themes in 2017. The planning process has involved broad representation, including input from the Board of Trustees, college leadership, faculty, exempt and classified staff, students, and community partners.
