10 in 10 Strategic Plan

2018-2028

Introduction

Annually, each Associated Student Government Administration considers a direction or focus while maintaining a consistent effort to provide long term direction for the students at Treasure Valley Community College. This document serves as a strategic guide to accomplish ten long term goals in ten years (10 in 10) and provide a continual focus for the capital projects which will be planned, promoted, facilitated, and executed through student leadership and collaboration with students, staff, faculty, administration, and the community.

History and Overview

In the fall of 2001, the Associated Student Government provided a strategic outlook for capital projects by approving the development of a capital account within the annual student budget. Prior to the formation of the 10 in 10 strategic plan in the spring of 2005, the Associated Student Government provided the students with several capital expenditures which tremendously benefited the campus. The purchase of a campus wide identification card system was approved by the student leaders in the fall of 2001. In addition, performance staging, backdrop, and sound were also purchased for the campus. In late spring of 2002, the ASG approved $5500.00 of S & A funds to expand the weight room.

Following the projects of 2001-02, multiple capital projects were on the forefront for the Associated Student Government. The Associated Student Government completed the first phase of the Campus Wide Information System under the direction of the student leadership team. In the summer of 2003, a collaborative remodel of the dining facility occurred which was followed by the collaborative purchase of a second Chukar Bus. Finally, in 2004 the student leaders approved funds for Phase II of the Campus Wide Information System and additional funds to purchase a new campus mascot.

The 10 in 10 was implemented in the spring of 2005 to provide strategic direction for the next ten years of capital expenditures for the Associated Student Government. The ASG diligently researched the long term needs of students and the impact of the completion of projects included within the strategic plan. Through the careful collection of data distributed via random sample (see addendum), focus groups, and leadership discussions the Associated Student Government determined the ten items which will be the focus of the 10 in 10 strategic plan.

Strategic Outcome #1 - Track and Field Complex

The construction of a track and field complex on campus for student athletics, student recreation, and community use.

The construction of a track and field complex enhances the recreational opportunities for all students on campus. A track and field complex is another method to provide an area for community events and non-traditional students to exercise. In addition, it allows the athletic department to have a location on campus for training, practice, competition, and rental to outside agencies.

Strategic Outcome #2 - Signs (Blue Directional and Entrance)

The placement of entrance signs help to distinguish location of campus and directional signs can assist students in finding buildings around campus.

Finishing up the entrance signs on campus will be a great accomplishment that helps to make campus look more professional and inviting, these signs help to distinguish when you are entering and exiting the campus. The completion of the blue directional signs will help new students to find their way around campus more easily and efficiently.

Strategic Outcome #6 - Walkway Improvements

The completion of a sidewalk going from the Weese Building to the Science Building, along with seating and artwork to enhance campus.

The addition of the sidewalk between these two buildings will help students and faculty get from building to building quicker and cleaner. Right now students and faculty either have to walk around the whole sidewalk and come up by the Barber Hall or walk through the grass. Along with the addition of this sidewalk, there will be seating and artwork along the sidewalk. This will give students a place to relax and study outdoors, and the artwork will add beauty to our campus.

Strategic Outcome #7 - Security Initiative

The careful placement and installation of Security Call boxes around campus as a mechanism to ensure student safety.

The security call boxes will provide enhanced safety for students on campus. If students are ever feeling threatened or unsafe, with the push of a button, officers will be dispatched to the location of the callbox immediately. These call boxes will give students a peace of mind while walking around campus.

Strategic Outcome #8 - Student Lounge Improvements

The construction or furnishing of student lounges on campus which provides study space for all students.

The construction or furnishing of student lounges on campus greatly enhances the opportunities for all students.

Strategic Outcome #9 - Water Bottle Refill Stations

The placement and installation of water bottle refill stations for student use.

The installation of water bottle refill stations provides students with clean, safe water. The stations are also very efficient and convenient for busy students that are in between classes. A lot of students do not drink enough water and these stations would make them more inclined to do so. The refill stations are also an easy way to minimize waste on campus and in the environment of plastic water bottles.

Strategic Outcome #10 - Weight Room Improvements

Updated equipment and renovation of the facility to enhance the performance of students and athletes on campus.

Updating the weight room by means of replacing the weight-lifting and cardio equipment, patching and repainting the walls, and replacing the floors, would allow all students to have a safer and more positive experience. It would also be an excellent recruiting tool for the TVCC athletic program.
