Chemeketa Strategic Plan: How we plan to fulfill the mission
Chemeketa Community College has adopted a seven-year strategic planning cycle aligned with its institutional cycle of accreditation. The current cycle began in the 2022-23 academic year and runs through 2028-29. This Strategic Plan is intended to act as a map to guide the college to mission fulfillment at the culmination of the cycle. In alignment with participatory governance principles, the College Council, a representative group of employees and students, is responsible for the development and oversight of strategic planning.
