A New Community Vision
In 2019, LaGuardia Community College convened a Steering Committee to re-examine the College’s strategic directions. The College wanted to actively identify areas of opportunity for our students, faculty and staff, so that we could refresh the specific priorities of our Mission and Core Values.
The Steering Committee convened the College’s major constituents during a one-day summit on February 1, 2019. One hundred thirty five faculty, staff and students attended, representing all sectors of the College. They discussed topics that embodied our Core Values: learning, diversity, responsibility, opportunity, and innovation. The Summit examined the history of LaGuardia’s Strategic Plan, then broke out into focus sessions. There, participants discussed initiatives and outcomes related to the 2018 Strategic Plan, as well as emergent challenges. These discussions led each focus group to develop recommendations about what goals and objectives should become strategic priorities, and what new efforts were needed to achieve them.
