DREAMing of 2030: Promoting Stewardship and Student Success through Grassroots Innovation
Tarrant County College is not unique among institutions of higher learning in that it has historically operated as a series of mutually exclusive silos rather than as a unified, strategically-minded, student success engine. Moreover, public institutions are under increasing pressure to effectively and efficiently deploy resources through projects that demonstrate responsible stewardship of taxpayer resources. By developing a tool for inspired, informed, and objective decision-making, Tarrant County College has created a vehicle for institutional change that engenders a sense of transparency, ownership and efficacy among students, faculty and staff.
With this tool, planning is a coordinated, streamlined, strategic effort that allows for more efficient communication and use of resources for the college as a whole, within its internal operational divisions, and for outside consultants. A "go-no go" business approach allows for quick filtering and implementation of emergency and low-cost initiatives, increasing departmental and system efficiency, while redirecting complicated or costly issues. Evaluative criteria is based on the institution's values — diversity, relevance, engagement, access and metrics (DREAM) — all of which ensure the institution is a responsible steward in each of its charges in the public interest. This dynamic webinar demonstrates this need for change, and how to move forward within a strategic framework that embraces all stakeholders.
