Strategic Planning

In the summer of 2023, Midland College initiated the design of a new strategic framework to drive our institution over the coming years.  While we continue to play a pivotal role in the region's education, innovation, and prosperity, we are also committed to addressing new challenges affecting our region and maximizing these opportunities to have a positive affect on student lives and surrounding communities. In collaboration with K-12 providers, colleague colleges and universities, community leaders, and business and industry partners, MC stands ready to help address the priorities of immediate workforce needs and foster future industry growth while putting student success at the center of all we do.
