For some institutions a strategic plan is viewed as a document that must be available during an accreditation visit, but is otherwise a dust collector on many bookshelves. In 2009, Midland College revised its assessment process to link strategic initiatives with its instructional and non-instructional areas. While working through this linking process it was discovered that different degrees of assessment occur at various levels of the organization. Capitalizing on this knowledge allowed for a process that incorporated strategic planning objectives into annual assessment activities. Ultimately a system of strategic planning accountability can be realized through ongoing campus activities.
