Gonzales began his opening remarks by welcoming the new faculty and staff to Southwest Texas Junior College.
He used his time to update faculty and staff on the status and progress on a myriad of topics including the college’s five-year strategic plan.
“We have a 14-19 strategic plan, and right now we are in the process in reviewing of the goals we have accomplished,” said Gonzales. “We will take this next year to look at that plan, make adjustments and come up with a new five-year plan.”
The current strategic plan focused on three main goals, which included to increase the number of developmental students to become college ready, the second was to increase the number of graduates and transfers, and third to increase the number of students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics majors.
According to Gonzales, some of the objectives also addressed in the plan were upgrading facilities in Del Rio, Eagle Pass and Uvalde.
In addition, a sizeable investment was made this summer on upgrading the information technology infrastructure.
Faculty attended meetings with their division chairs; committee meetings and also partook in the 4 Disciplines of Execution, which is an initiative of precise rules for translating strategy into action at all levels of an organization.
Classes begin on Monday (Aug. 22), while late registration runs through Aug. 23.
Students, who did not have the opportunity to sign up for the 16-week fall semester, can register for the 12-week fall semester through Sept. 16.
Classes for the 12-week fall semester begin Sept. 19.
