To improve student success, the college will identify and remove barriers to completion.
What we heard that shaped this
strategic priority:
  • The college advising process must be updated
    and enhanced.
  • Students need active support from faculty and staff to overcome their challenges.
  • To assist educational planning the college should implement a two-year scheduling model.
  • We should be more responsive to community needs and workforce trends.

ACTION STEPS
1.  Implement phase one of PASS (Proactive Advising for Student Success).
2.  Implement and promote to students a two year class schedule.
4.  Analyze study group written recommendations for potential adoption of feasible student childcare and transportation options.

To improve the user experience with technology, the college will enhance technology professional development and
improve the NPC website and MyNPC.
What we heard that shaped this strategic priority:
  • The quality and quantity of available technical training does not meet the needs of the college community.
  • The current NPC website (www.npc.edu) is not mobile friendly and needs an organizational update.
  • The MyNPC website does not meet the needs of staff or students.
  • We should be more responsive to community needs and workforce trends.
What we will do to improve technology, professional development,
and college websites:

ACTION STEPS
1.  Implement a range of technology-focused training and professional development opportunities for college employees.
2.  Review and improve prioritization of IS technology support.
3.  Implement peer-based training founded on college needs and capabilities.
