ASPIRE 2025 is a bold and forward-thinking strategic plan developed through shared governance. The work of the ﬁfty-member Strategic Planning Steering Committee is the culmination of over six months of collaboration and analysis that considered the voices of our students, alumni, faculty, local community, staff, as well as numerous internal and external stakeholders. Active participation and transparency were ensured through forums, presentations, campus meetings, community town halls, and surveys. This exchange of ideas led our Strategic Planning Steering Committee to build this ambitious, forward-thinking, and attainable plan. While ASPIRE 2025 guides our planning efforts, our continuous assessment data and annual planning priorities inform our operational planning. We are prepared to adjust to changing conditions and shall continue an open dialogue with our stakeholders on our progress in implementing and/or revising our plans, based on what we learn.
The ASPIRE 2025 Strategic Plan outlines the next ﬁve-year chapter in our continued growth and is focused on innovation and sustained excellence. The Plan centers on four strategic themes, which emerged from an extensive data collection and analysis process that included several years of trend data, benchmarking, and input from many constituents. The four themes are: (1) Innovation; (2) Institutional Sustainability; (3) Instructional Excellence and Relevance; (4) Student Success. The Strategic Planning Steering Committee identiﬁed speciﬁc initiatives under the umbrella of each strategic theme. These initiatives are deﬁned areas of focused effort and resource allocation by academic and administrative units. Through our annual strategic planning processes, these initiatives are developed into operational plans that align with unit-level planning efforts and with appropriate resource allocations. Through this process, the entire College community works together to ensure TRC builds on its successes and continues to move toward excellence for our students.
The ASPIRE 2025 ﬁve-year plan is effective July 1, 2020. In closing, we wish to thank the members of the Strategic Planning Steering Committee for their commitment and dedication to this process. Our successes over the past 50-plus years would not have been possible without the conﬁdence and support of our dedicated alumni and College community. Thank you to each of you for your continued dedication and support of Three Rivers College!
