LSC-Tomball 2020 Strategic Plan Final Report

Tomball 2020 Overview

In the spring of 2015, Lone Star College-Tomball partnered with Analytics and Institutional Reporting (AIR) to launch Tomball 2020, a new and innovative process for developing a campus strategic plan. The focus of this plan would be to (1) give the campus an overall strategic direction for the next five years, and (2) provide solutions to reverse a multi-semester enrollment decline. The process was designed to be inclusive, data-driven, and specific to the needs of the Tomball campus. Therefore, under the leadership of Dr. Lee Ann Nutt, all college personnel were organized into four strategy groups that were led by facilitators and subject matter experts (SMEs). 

Each strategy group was unique in how they identified initiatives, but all followed three general steps: (1) examination of campusís current status quo relating to their strategy groupís objective, (2) solicitation of input from stakeholders from various campus departments/divisions, and (3) development of initiatives with consideration of potential barriers to their future success.
