Superintendent/President Goals—Academic Year 2014-15
Each year the Napa Valley College Board of Trustees establishes performance goals for the Superintendent/President. These goals are developed through consultation with the Superintendent/President and are integral to the strategic planning process of Napa Valley College and closely linked to the biennial goals the Board of Trustees sets for itself.
- Continue to monitor & take proactive actions to ensure the District conducts the proper and reasonable planning and execution for the completion of the ACCJC accreditation. These efforts will focus on providing relevant and necessary means for the college to complete the self-study, communicate with audiences regarding the importance and significance of accreditation to the college and the community.
- Continue in the development of short-, intermediate-, and long-term planning initiatives for integrated marketing/development strategies to increase visibility of the college through coordinated efforts and consistent messaging, enhancing the college's reputation, and helping to grow enrollment. These efforts will focus on recruiting new students, retaining current students, communicating within the college community, and connections with external audiences, donors, alumni and business partners.
- Continue in the development and pursuit of external resource building capacity to address the fiscal realities of the District's ability to meet its mission. These efforts will focus on leveraging and fully utilizing the District's capital assets, including land, buildings and facilities, and the continued development of the District's Auxiliary Services to provide both resources and support for the college.
- Ensure the on-going development of a Comprehensive Campus Master Plan for the District. These efforts with input from the college, local and regional community, and external stakeholders— result in a plan that maximizes the District land use and resource building capacity.
- Continue to implement methods and provide opportunities to ensure that the Governing Board Members are informed and up-to-date on college related issues, engaged in the community to build awareness, and develop professional skills and expertise as Board members. These efforts will include recommendations for stronger Board participation in District policy-making.
- Manage a process that ensures college leadership, faculty and staff collaborate, plan, prioritize, and perform. These efforts will include managing and monitoring major initiative(s) for implementation; providing leadership and mentoring for administrative teams, faculty and executive college leadership.
