Strategic Planning

The Strategic Planning process begins by gathering feedback from the people and organizations we serve as well as our own Board of Trustees and employees. This feedback, combined with a rich set of data, will then be used to create a plan that will guide the college into the future in order to extend our proud tradition of providing excellence in teaching and learning. It is the intent of the Board to ensure that Lake Land College is positioned to continue to forge bright futures in higher education.
