PASCO, Wash. – Columbia Basin College has launched the process that will create its new Strategic Plan, the document that will set the College’s goals through the year 2024.

Community members are encouraged to take part in the process through small-group feedback sessions, which will be offered remotely in the weeks ahead. The College is taking an equity-based approach to this process to ensure all voices can be heard.

The college will finalize its Strategic Plan this summer. Feedback sessions are scheduled from March 10-March 19. These sessions are limited to six participants each, and will last between 90-120 minutes. Some of these sessions are organized as “affinity group” discussions, and are designed for participants who share aspects of their identity. They may be organized by race, gender, sexual orientation, language, nationality and more. Both the open and the affinity group sessions will be facilitated by college personnel and student volunteers. All sessions are conducted remotely via Zoom.

To sign-up for a feedback session, please visit the college’s Strategic Plan webpage.
