Victoria College hosted the monthly Victoria Chamber of Commerce breakfast on Wednesday at VC’s Emerging Technology Complex.

Victoria College President Dr. David Hinds and Vice Presidents Marji Price-Seeger, Jennifer Yancey and Keith Blundell outlined the college’s 2015-20 strategic plan priorities.

“The plan is dynamic,” Hinds said. “It is changing all the time as we meet and talk about our priorities and how we are going to measure and define success.”

Price-Seeger, who joined VC in May as vice president of instruction, spoke about the college’s student success priority.

“As a newcomer to the college and the community, I am very impressed with the amount of dedication by all the members of the college, members of the community as well as members of the board of trustees,” Price-Seeger said of the strategic plan.

“We are committed to in increasing student engagement. From the moment they make an inquiry about the college, we have a plan for moving them from inquiry to admissions to enrollment to clearly identifying and understanding their goals and keeping track of those goals to move them along the spectrum.”

Yancey, VP of College Advancement and External Affairs, addressed the plan’s community needs priority.

“It is very important that we are providing relevant training, relevant skills and relevant educational opportunities for our students so they can be employed upon completion of their program of study at Victoria College,” Yancey said.

“We recognize there is power in partnerships. We want to make sure we are engaging our stakeholders, listening to our stakeholders and improving the educational and training opportunities that we provide to ensure a qualified workforce.”

Blundell, VP of Administrative Services, detailed the strategic plan’s institutional excellence priority.

“We support a culture in which employees are happy and productive,” Blundell said. “We’ve developed a wellness program that has worked very well. We’re going to continue to grow that.”

Blundell also spoke on VC’s commitment to providing a welcoming and safe environment as well as relevant facilities, technology and professional development.
