January 2, 2019 | Campus News

East Central College is inviting the community to participate in its Future Summit. The event is designed to address the college’s challenges and search for future opportunities. It will take place in the John Edson Anglin Performing Arts Center from 12:30 – 4:00 p.m. on Friday, January 18.

“As we continue our pursuit of excellence,” said Dr. Jon Bauer, East Central College President, “we are in the process of designing a new strategic plan. Community input is an invaluable resource in creating that plan.”

East Central College’s Strategic Plan Initiative, SOAR to 2024, will help it identify and define the experience it provides to its students. The Future Summit is an integral part of the strategic planning process.

The conference-style event will happen on the Union campus and will feature a keynote speaker and topics that will form the foundation of the event including:

  • Creating a Culture of Change and Building Trust
  • Aligning School Districts, Colleges and Employers for Long-Term Success
  • Maintaining a Personal Touch in a High-Tech Learning Environment
  • The Power of Data to Support Learning and Student Success

Following these talks, community members will have the opportunity to join small group discussions. The input from these discussion groups will inform the college’s strategies for the next five years and beyond.

“The Future Summit is designed to bring all constituents together for learning and discussion,” said Dr. Bauer. “It is an opportunity to jump-start future planning for business and industry and community organizations.”
