Strategic Plan

Review our current strategic plan, and learn more about the development of the 2022-2027 strategic plan.

The Lane Community College 2016-2021 Strategic Plan has provided a framework for the College to focus on strategic work over the past five years. This plan was developed with extensive engagement of the college community and includes mission, vision, values and strategic directions. 

Moving forward, the College will renew the plan with goals that will shape our course over the next five years, 2022-2027. This work will be undertaken in a challenging environment in which our community and nation face a health crisis, an economic crisis, and a social justice crisis. The confluence of these challenges will have unknown, yet profound, impacts on the community and hence the college. This strategic plan renewal process will build upon the work completed in the past planning process to establish a roadmap for the future which allows for nimbleness to respond to environmental factors. 

Lane’s 2022-2027 strategic plan is organized around six goals as listed below. The strategic goals were identified under guidance from the Board of Education, the Strategic Plan Steering Committee and Operations Committee, with extensive feedback and survey data from employees, students, and community members.

Strategic Goals

  • Improve diversity, equity and inclusion in student access and achievement.
  • Increase enrollment
  • Increase student success
  • Engage in continuous improvement
  • Improve financial stability and sustainability
