Strategic Plan

In order to support the College’s mission, the strategic plan was developed with six major directions to serve as its guiding framework. Grinnell's model of strategic planning is one of distributed leadership. For each of the six major directions, there are faculty and staff co-leads and a corresponding administrative office.

Strategic Planning and Financial Support

Strategic planning is an ongoing process of evaluation, reflection, and improvement that helps the College set priorities, manage resources, define performance expectations, and ensure integrated actions.
