  • Dec – Feb 2024, Draft and Review: A draft plan will be produced and reviewed. 
  • Jan – Mar 2024, Validate: Once goals and objectives are developed, additional outreach will be conducted to make sure that what is produced reflects the campus. This validation phase will also be informed by current trends in higher education. 
  • May - June 2024, Finalize: Once the plan has been reviewed, any changes will be incorporated, and the plan will be finalized. The resulting plan will include an aspirational vision for Olympic College, the mission statement, a unifying values statement, attainable goals, and tangible objectives.
