Strategic Planning Responsibilities
The development of the college’s strategic plan has been led by the Board of Governors. The Board and the President developed an initial strategic framework in October 1999 and have continued to evolve the strategic direction of the college through facilitated strategic planning sessions. This Strategic Plan assimilates and presents a comprehensive view of the results of the strategic planning process.
By legislation, the Board of Governors is responsible for setting the overall strategic direction of the college, and the President is responsible for formulating the specific objectives.
Strategic Planning Methodology
College of the North Atlantic has undertaken a number of strategic planning initiatives, the results of which are incorporated in the Plan. These initiatives have included:
- A series of facilitated strategic planning retreats for the Board and management;
- Extensive external and internal consultation through facilitated meetings and an online survey; and
- Completion of an extensive environmental scan.
As a public institution, and given its proactive role in the social and economic develop of the province, the college participates in the implementation of the province’s Strategic Social Plan at various levels. College representatives participate with the Strategic Social Plan authorities and bring relevant issues forward to the college’s strategic planning process.
