During the Olympic break, we are beginning to write a draft of a strategic planning document that should be ready to share with employees in mid- to late March.
I thank everyone who contributed their time and thoughts throughout this process. Thank you to those who participated in and facilitated the discussions on our seven key themes [PDF]. A great deal of information was shared at each session and I am reading the facilitators' summaries as well as the comments and suggestions that have been posted on this blog.
We also held community partners’ breakfasts in New Westminster, Coquitlam, and Maple Ridge and you can read a summary report [PDF] of the three events.
Additional community input is still being sought through a web survey. And we are also running a web survey for students to gather their ideas.
The energy, enthusiasm, and great interest that has been exhibited throughout the strategic planning process has been truly inspirational. Douglas College employees, students, and the communities we serve continue to demonstrate a clear commitment to the values and vision of Douglas College. --Scott
