Implementation and Assessment

Implementation and Assessment

After the 2016-2021 Strategic Plan is approved by the board of education, focus will shift to implementation planning. A lead will be assigned to each strategic direction and be charged with coordinating implementation plans for identified key strategies as outlined below.

Strategic Direction Implementation Planning

  1. Identify implementation teams for each key strategy
    In several cases, teams and structures are already in place to support a strategy (for example Achieving the Dream and Strategic Enrollment Management are working on expanding advising and academic planning; Academic Technology, the Open Education Resource Committee, and Library staff are working on expanding quality online instruction, curricula, and course materials; the Diversity Council is researching Equity Lens models; and the Institute for Sustainable Practices is working to implement Lane’s Climate Action Plan.)
    In other cases, we will build new teams that draw upon the interest, subject matter expertise, and implementation skills of faculty, staff and managers.
  2. Develop outcomes and measures
    Implementation teams will review established outcomes and/or develop new outcomes that describe the desired result for each strategy, and measures (quantifiable indicators to assess outcome achievement.)
  3. Develop timelines and milestones
    Each strategic direction lead will work with implementation teams to map out sequencing of key strategies over the five year planning horizon, which will include establishing timelines and major milestones for each strategy.
  4. Annual Assessment
    Strategic direction leads will provide an annual report to College Council and the Board of Education that includes a narrative description of progress, measures data, and updates or adjustments for the coming year. In addition to measures for specific strategies the annual report will include an assessment of progress toward college core theme indicators, as these are the highest level measures of progress and mission fulfillment.
