Strategic Plan

Strategic Plan

The San Diego Community College District has initiated a strategic planning process that will help shape the district’s future mission, vision, and direction. The SDCCD strategic plan will serve as a roadmap that guides district activities over the next five years. A key focus of the plan will be how the district can fulfill its commitment to equitable outcomes for the 100,000 students it serves annually. 

The public and all members of the SDCCD community, including students, faculty, classified professionals, and administrators, are invited to participate in the strategic planning process. The survey will be available May 19. 

See the District Strategic Plan Background Information presented at the charrettes meeting.
