Strategic Plan Scorecard

Ten strategies must be implemented to reach College of Charleston's strategic goals.

The ten strategies are not listed in rank order. With each strategy is a ranked list of tactics.  Each tactic indicates how that strategy might be implemented.  More specifically, each tactic guides the development of one or more specific, measurable actions, which will be incorporated in the College's annual fiscal plans. The tactics are ranked in order of their importance for achieving the plan's goals and, thus, the College's envisioned future.  The list of tactics provided for each strategy will be revised on occasion.

The 94 tactics will be amplified by the plans developed in each school, department and division in response to the College's strategic plan.  Like the strategic plan, the school, departmental, and devisional plans should be revised and updated periodically and should be aligned with the strategies and tactics described below.

Some of the tactics described in the original strategic plan, which was approved by the Board of Trustees in October 2009, have been accomplished.  A list of these achievements is being maintained and updated periodically.
