A Thriving Institution
This plan sets a new standard of excellence for educating the Tri-State community. It draws on newly developed capacities in academic programming, a learner-centered environment and institutional supports to help students achieve greater success. The Strategic Plan will help us track our success, report back to the community and keep us focused on ensuring that our students have the highest-quality learning experience possible.
Through the plan, Mountwest aims to:
Graduate more certificate and degree completers.
Increase the number of students who transfer to four-year institutions following graduation from Mountwest.
Improve the job placement rate of our graduates within their fields of study.
We also expect to be a healthy institution that has:
An inherent value within our community achieved through the lives of the students and employers we serve.
Dynamic relationships with employers, secondary schools and other community organizations.
A welcoming campus environment open to the community as a whole.
As we gain traction in these areas, Mountwest also plans to enhance its efforts in both transfer and online education.
