Vital Few Objectives & Initiatives

In order to meet our Mission, Values and Vision, the College has developed Vital Few Objectives (VFOs).  Similar to goals, these VFOs are intended to articulate what success will look like in five key areas:  Financial Vision, Students Success, Community Needs, Process Improvements, and Investments in People.  Each of the VFOs further articulates success in succinct statements such as 'Improve Financial Sustainability and Strengthen Capital and IT Infrastructure' under Financial Vision. In addition, the College has developed one-year change initiatives aligned under our VFOs.
