About the 2022-2026 Strategic Plan

The 2022-2026 Strategic Plan was developed by the Strategic Plan Oversight Taskforce and College Planning Council, with broad constituent input. The plan will serve as Long Beach City College’s north star and will guide the implementation of plans and initiatives for the next four years. The plan is intentionally aligned with the Chancellor’s Office Vision for Success and Guided Pathways.

The 2022-2026 Strategic Plan includes the Mission, Vision, and Values, followed by the Strategic Plan Themes, Goals, and Strategies. The Mission explains the purpose of our College, the Vision provides a brief overarching statement of what our College hopes to achieve in the future, and the Values describe the fundamental beliefs our College holds. The four Strategic Plan Goals describe what we hope to achieve through the implementation of the Strategies.

Our Commitment to Strategic Plan Implementation

The time is now for transformation and for courageous leadership to confront the status-quo at Long Beach City College through the implementation of the 2022-2026 Strategic Plan.

In order to successfully implement the Strategic Plan, administration, full- and part-time faculty, classified professionals, and student leadership must recognize that they are collectively responsible for implementation of the Strategic Plan’s Themes, Goals, and Strategies. This includes raising awareness amongst all faculty, classified professionals, administrators, and students of the Mission, Vision, Values, and Strategic Plan Themes, Goals, Strategies; actively ensuring that planning processes at all levels of the College and implementation of initiatives at the College directly align with the Strategic Plan; and broadly communicating progress on the Strategic Plan to all constituents. College leadership must commit to focusing on the prism of possibility and ensure systemic engagement in implementing the Strategic Plan, which will be monitored through College Planning Council. Only through working together can we successfully fulfill our Mission, Vision, and Values.
