In collaboration with stakeholders we created a strategic plan that will make Colorado community colleges unsurpassed at providing quality educational opportunities. Our goals include:

  • Student and CCCS workforce experience
  • Creating education without barriers
  • Focusing on accessibility, affordability, equity, student completion, accountability, resource development and operational excellence

The 2015-2025 Strategic Plan was approved by the Board in 2014-2015. For the first three years of the plan, System Staff reported to the Board on progress towards the 18 Key Performance Metrics (KPMs) in the plan. In October 2018 , the Board identified three key priorities for the System and each of the colleges: student success, equity, and concurrent enrollment.

In addition, the Board directed System Staff to revise some KPMs in the strategic plan to align with the new priorities, and to identify leading indicators by which the system office would measure progress towards achieving the revised KPMs.

This 2019 annual strategic plan report reflects the revised KPMs and leading indicators.

(Note: KPMs from the 2015-2025 System Strategic Plan not covered in this report are reported to the Chancellor in December of each year. See Additional Key Performance Metrics tab)
