Strategic Planning at Saint Paul College

In January 2012, the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) system put forth its Strategic Framework for Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, and stated that Minnesota State Colleges and Universities play an essential role in growing Minnesota’s economy and opening the doors of educational opportunity to all Minnesotans. Within the Strategic Framework, MnSCU provides three goals, upon which Saint Paul College has developed its long-range strategic goals.

Saint Paul College’s current strategic plan, 2020 Vision: Strategic Plan 2012-2020, was developed in 2012 using the Higher Learning Commissions Vital Focus process. A fifteen member Strategic Planning Work Group was composed of internal and external stakeholders and facilitated by the Dean of Institutional Research, Planning, and Effectiveness.

Strategic Priorities

In addition to the Strategic Plan established by the College in 2012, each year the institution identifies Strategic Priorities to guide the annual focus and Work Plan activities of the College. Strategic Priorities are aligned with the Long-Range Strategic Goals and are identified through examining key performance indicator outcomes. Strategic Priorities enable the College to address emerging student and organizational needs while ensuring alignment with the long-range strategic goals.
