The 2020 Strategic Plan leverages our many successes of the past year and memorializes our vision to transform Rowan College at Burlington County into the model of 21st century higher education. This plan will quickly lead us to the future in which more Burlington County students graduate with a bachelor’s degree three years after high school, we will have robust corporate partnerships for academic and workforce programs and we will feature modernized offerings that remain on the cutting-edge of what employers need.
In the past year, the college has:
- Implemented a historic partnership with Rowan University that allows students to earn a high-quality bachelor’s degree for as little as $25,000.
- Began a transition to transform the Mount Laurel campus into the ultimate modern student experience while transitioning out of the college’s original Pemberton campus.
- Reengineered the organization structure to place a greater emphasis on student success, workforce development and academics.
- Launched a new Workforce Development Institute, an innovative combination of county, college and private-sector resources, which has earned national acclaim for addressing workforce needs of today and tomorrow.
The plan is divided among four strategic pillars: access, affordability, quality and effectiveness, and student success. It includes a new mission statement: Rowan College at Burlington County transforms lives by delivering innovative, high-quality and affordable educational experiences in an accessible and diverse environment.
The plan also includes tactical initiatives and benchmarks to give the college flexibility to incorporate new initiatives as new student success methods evolve. This section will be updated annually.
Updates and progress reports on the plan will be posted on this page.
