Message from the President
Three Rivers College's history is an amazing story of progress and innovation, and the next five years hold even greater promise for our college. To guide that progress, the college's Strategic Planning Steering Committee, which includes broad-based representation from throughout the college, developed a vision statement and seven strategic planning themes. These themes, and the initiatives and strategies generated from these themes, are being used to position our college for innovation, educational excellence, and fulfilling our mission to positively impact lives by helping transform dreams into reality.
Our strategic planning themes, outlined on the following pages, will direct our planning processes and dictate how resources are best invested to benefit the students who bring to us their dreams and expectations for a high-quality education.
The themes form a framework that is crucial to Three Rivers continuing to fill the vital role of meeting the education and workforce needs of our area. As the college evolves and grows, our vision and themes will keep in focus our responsibility of being THE community college of Southeast Missouri.
Also included in this publication are artist's renderings that capture Three Rivers' vision for future expansion.
With our strategic themes and visionary projects, this is an exciting and dynamic time for Three Rivers. As you read through this document, I encourage you to consider what you can do to help in developing the future of Three Rivers College.
Dr. Devin Stephenson, President
