Foundational Reading

These publicly-available texts are labeled "foundational readings" and were selected for review by the Strategic Planning Committee because they help illustrate, from a variety of perspectives, many of the key issues impacting higher education. They are not meant to be definitive or exhaustive, but rather provide a minimum common ground for the "Environmental Scan" of higher education. That scan is a starting point for the process of strategic planning, and aligned with the College's principles outlined in our Planning, Assessment, and Continuous Improvement (PACI) document.
