Compared to our previous strategic planning processes, the extension of the process to incorporate finance and budgeting acknowledge that during the next five years the college is likely to be in a position where it is likely to be faced with more good uses of financial and human capital resources than will be available. Thus the strategic plan is designed to provide a foundation for making sound strategic decisions about alternative uses of the college’s limited future resources.
