The initial strategic plan developed by SRTC was developed in 2015 to be in effect July 1, 2015, the effective date of the consolidation between Moultrie Technical College and Southwest Georgia Technical College and would be in effect until 2020. At which time a new strategic plan (2021-2025) would be developed and in place for the next five years. The State Board does not approve Strategic Plans
During the consolidation phase in 2014, the initial strategic plan (which included the development of the College Vision, Values, and College Goals) was developed by the Consolidation Steering Committee. Once these components were developed, the Consolidation Steering Committee divided into subcommittees and determined Strategic Objectives needed to accomplish the College Goals and later identified activities, resources needed, and assigned responsibility for activities. Consolidation Steering Committee members used as a basis for SRTC strategic planning efforts the prior Southwest Georgia Technical College Strategic Plan and the prior Moultrie Technical College Strategic Plan, which were both prepared a couple of years prior to the official consolidation announcement. The SRTC Strategic Plan 2016-2020 was presented on behalf of the Consolidation Steering Committee (October 6, 2014) for approval by the two Local Board of Directors (October 15, 2014, October 7, 2014). At that time, the former Local Boards of Directors had not been consolidated.
During the acquisition phase in 2017, the President’s Leadership Cabinet reviewed the Strategic Plan in place and determined that an update was needed to reflect new priorities that were identified due to changes taking place at the College and as the result of the substantive changes involving the acquisition and additional off-campus sites. The SRTC Strategic Plan 2016-2020: 2018 Update was developed by the President’s Leadership Cabinet with additional input from the Human Relations Director and Executive Director of Information Technology. The President’s Leadership Cabinet reviewed the College Vision, Values, and College Goals and determined that changes/updates in College Goals and Strategic Objectives were needed to reflect new initiatives for 2018 and to prepare for the upcoming acquisition and site additions, to be effective July 1, 2018. President’s Leadership Cabinet also took into consideration changes that would be reflected in other input sources for the Strategic Plan including Institutional Effectiveness Plan Components: the SRTC Master Facility Plan: 2018 and the SRTC Information Technology Plan: 2017-2018. The SRTC Strategic Plan 2016-2020: 2018 Update was presented on behalf of the President’s Leadership Cabinet (November 14, 2017) for approval by the Local Board of directors (November 28, 2017).
