Western Technical College releases strategic plan

Western Technical College is planning for their next five years.

The college released its strategic plan, titled Experience 2025.

Following the Vision 2020 strategic plan, which addressed facility needs on campus, Western is shifting its focus to the student experience.

Goals for the next seven years include an improvement in student satisfaction and increased involvement of students with the community and regional employers.

“So it’s really about helping the ones that chose Western stay on the continuum and graduate, because in the end we need more graduates,” said Western Technical College President Roger Stanford.

Western also plans to expand partnerships with grade schools.
