Letter from President Pink regarding 2018-2022 Strategic Plan

Grand Rapids Community College embraces the role it plays in West Michigan, especially during difficult times. Every challenge our community has faced, this college has been there to respond and help rebuild.

We are called upon to serve all of the people who make up our community. Students of all ages and all abilities walk through our doors, and we are proud to help them all along an educational pathway to success.

Our focus is to be relevant and responsive to our community. We are the place all people can turn to gain an education and career skills. Our efforts must reflect the challenges faced by the people we serve and the goals they strive to reach. We will continue to remove obstacles to success and ensure everyone has an opportunity to thrive. Together, we will make our community stronger.

Our strategic plan is our roadmap as we move forward. We’ve worked with the Strategic Leadership Team, other GRCC family members, and stakeholders to develop a solid three-year plan to guide our campus.

These goals for 2018 through 2021 are:

  • Teaching and Learning
  • Completion and Transfer
  • Equity
  • Community Impact
  • Sustainability and  Infrastructure

Our commitment to these goals will be unwavering, and our work as a community college is essential. And I know, with the dedicated team we have at GRCC, we will be successful.
