In June 2020, the Alabama Community College System (ACCS) shared with all 24 System colleges an initiative called ASPIRE (Achieving System Wide Potential Through Increased Resources and Engagement).
ACCS ASPIRE 2030 is a system-wide initiative designed to inspire community-focused strategic planning for capital improvement projects. Through ACCS ASPIRE 2030, Chancellor Jimmy Baker has encouraged our colleges to “dream big” in envisioning what our colleges should look like in 2030. But those dreams and visions should be guided by the overarching goal of serving local communities more effectively, and these plans should be refined with input from a broad base of community stakeholders. By engaging external partners in the planning process, colleges will be connecting their work to that of potential community partners who can provide vital support to students. Colleges will also be gaining valuable insight on community issues where the college can have a positive impact.
Wallace Community College-Dothan is pleased to provide our ASPIRE 2030 Self-Analysis, and we are grateful to all those individuals who contributed to this process.
