Coastal Vision 2021 - Charting a New Direction

Coastal Vision 2021

During the 2014-15 academic year, Coastal Georgia undertook an inclusive, rigorous and synergistic strategic planning process, including an environmental scan and SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) analysis, as well as a series of focus groups with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders.

Through thoughtful deliberation and reflection, five strategic themes (Student Enrichment, Academic Excellence, Institutional Distinction, Leadership through Community Engagement & Partnerships, and Sustainability & Organizational Development) were formulated to serve as key pillars with foundational strategic goals and objectives to support the College’s mission, vision and core values.

The end result of this planning process was a new strategic plan, Coastal Vision 2021. The plan has provided Schools, departments, and offices on both the Brunswick campus and Camden Center with a guide for navigating through planning and resource allocation decisions.

Coastal Vision 2021 set a dynamic pathway for Coastal Georgia in becoming a college of choice, providing associate and baccalaureate degree programs, accentuated by strong leadership, exemplary student development, and worthwhile community linkages to the cultural, economic and social well-being of the local community, southeast Georgia and beyond.

Next Strategic Plan

As the current strategic plan is nearing the end of its utility, President Michelle Johnston and senior staff are now turning their attention to developing a new strategic plan for the College of Coastal Georgia. A cross-campus Strategic Planning Steering Committee will be formed in late summer, and their work to collect data to identify the institution’s current identity, evaluate strategic options for the future, and envision the future of Coastal Georgia will get underway, providing the visionary planning to guide Coastal Georgia beginning Fall 2022.
