Notwithstanding the disruption in planning caused by the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic, growth and expansion of our institutional presence and programming remain high priority objectives in our 5-Year Academic and Strategic plans. Accordingly, our leadership teams have taken up the challenge of envisioning the next 5-years through the development of five strategic directions that position our independently established colleges to flourish in the post-pandemic environment. These strategic directions create an opportunity for VPC to establish a unique academic program niche, reputation and identity and to ensure a sustainable future amid numerous challenges in the post-secondary education sector.
During the 2019–20 academic year, leadership invited our campus community to share their vision and to participate in the development of governance, academic and operational policies which included setting a new strategic direction and re-positioning of our independent colleges given their expansion and new academic programs. Participants included Registrar, operations, admissions, marketing, instructors and student services, budgeting and finance. The policies were developed during the 2019–20 academic year in consideration of our new direction and with extensive input from administrators, instructors, staff and students through a number of self-study workshops, small-group and one-on-one policy and planning meetings. After incorporating the input received through the various development processes, VPC’s policies were approved by the Board of Governors and Board of Directors in May and June 2022 respectively..
