Help to Determine Our Future

Higher Ed is changing quickly. There are many challenges we face and many directions we should consider. This is your opportunity to participate in the strategic planning for the college. That planning will set the agenda for the next ten years.

The college has a series of Listening Sessions coming up soon to get input from faculty, staff, students and the community. The questions asked will include: What does Vol State do well? What can Vol State do better? And, what should Vol State be doing in the future? These discussions will include ideas on strengthening college relationships with K-12 education and how to expand the Vol State commitment to business and workforce development. The sessions will be informal and provide plenty of opportunity for conversation. Participants are asked to come with ideas to share.

The faculty and staff Listening Sessions will be held on Friday, September 11 at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. in the Nichols Dining Room of the Wood Campus Center. You are also welcome to attend the public meeting on September 29 at 8 a.m. also in the Nichols Dining Room

People can submit ideas for Vol State planning online by visiting www.volstate.edu/strategicplan. For other questions please call Lauren Collier at 615-230-3530. The current college strategic goals can be found at www.volstate.edu/Research/StrategicGoals.
