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. 

Public input will be sought in two ways: through an online survey and at two community meetings. The first community meeting was held March 1.

A follow-up meeting will be held later this spring, when a draft of the strategic plan is ready for comment and review. Similar to the community meeting, the online survey will seek input on key issues to be addressed by the strategic plan, areas of opportunity, and what distinguishes the district and its colleges. 

In addition to the at-large community meeting, individual District Office and college planning charrettes will take place in March. The entire project is expected to conclude this summer and implementation of the strategic plan is expected to begin during the 2022-23 academic year.

See the Strategic Plan Framework

The SDCCD has also conducted surveys for students, employees and the San Diego community during February and March. The surveys sought input on key issues to be addressed by the strategic plan, areas of opportunity, and what distinguishes the District and its colleges.

The District appreciates the feedback received to date on the Draft Strategic Plan. If you have not yet had the chance to provide feedback, we invite you to take this short survey, which includes links to the main sections of the Strategic Plan Framework. All responses will be confidential.
