Ivy Tech Community College is extending its Accelerating Greatness strategic plan through 2025 in order to help reach the nation’s goal of postsecondary degree attainment. This plan is aligned with national higher education goals to achieve 60 percent post-secondary attainment among working-age adults (25-64) by 2025. The Indiana Commission for Higher Education (CHE) adopted this goal and Ivy Tech will contribute significantly to Indiana’s efforts to achieve this goal.
Ivy Tech’s Strategic Plan 2010 and Accelerating Greatness 2013 positioned the Institution as the Community College of Indiana and as a national leader in addressing issues of student success.
Building on the College’s good work, the foundation of a Balanced Scorecard model, and the tenants of Jim Collin’s 2005 monograph Good to Great and the Social Sectors, the revised Accelerating Greatness 2025 plan focuses on four strategies – Ensuring students meet their educational objectives; Ensuring a sustainable financial resource base; Ensuring processes are of optimal quality, efficiency, and effectiveness; Ensuring human, space and physical resources are sustained.
Strategy 1: Ensure students meet their educational objectives.
Strategy 2: Ensure a sustainable financial resource base.
Strategy 3: Ensure processes are of optimal quality, efficiency, and effectiveness.
Strategy 4: Ensure optimal human and physical resource capacity.
Accelerating Greatness 2025 is a rolling, three-year plan. Each year, the regional research and data representatives, institutional research staff in the office of the president, chancellors, and Strategic Planning Council (SPC) (including the president’s cabinet representatives) will review annual targets and ensure appropriate alignment with short-term and long-term metrics. High-level dashboard metrics will include the following:
Additionally, the college will develop and track process metrics measured in the following categories:

Accelerating Greatness 2025 Leadership
Accelerating Greatness 2025 (AG2025) serves as Ivy Tech’s, three-year plan. Each year, regional leadership will work with the SPC, AG2025’s oversight body, to report on and communicate successes, adjust and add new initiatives, and monitor progress toward increased student success. Initiative and strategy champions will bring recommendations to the SPC as resources, evaluation and communication efforts are needed. Recommendations will run through the SPC and the chancellor co-chair (or his/her designee) will then take recommendations to the Executive Council for final approval. Thus, as initiatives are completed and added, AG 2025 leadership will transition and responsibilities will be shared broadly.
The SPC is co-chaired by President, Tom Snyder; Bloomington Chancellor, John Whikehart and Associate Vice President for Planning and Research, Jill Robinson Kramer. Strategy champions, a faculty representative, a student government representative and a representative from the office of technology, the Foundation, marketing and communication, institutional research, student affairs, and three chancellor representatives will also serve on the SPC.
Roles and responsibilities for Strategy Champions include the following:
