Comprehensive Master Plan

GWC Vision 2030 Comprehensive Master Plan

We are proud to share VISION 2030 with you! This document provides the College with a road map for the next decade, designed to strengthen and expand the College’s commitment to student success.

This Comprehensive Master Plan was developed with broad Collegewide participation. Faculty and staff from each College department and program were invited to join in the analysis of quantitative and qualitative data and share their aspirations for the ways that Golden West College will continue to serve its students and communities. As we envision where we’ll be in ten years, such cross-College collaboration will continue to be an asset in addressing the unique challenges ahead.

The Vision 2030 Task Force, comprised of representatives from academic programs, student services, administrative services, and leadership groups, was essential to this collaborative process. This group analyzed quantitative and qualitative data that provided an assessment of student outcomes and the College’s current site and facilities as well as the changes that are anticipated in nearby communities and labor markets.

In the midst of uncertainty and rapid change that characterized 2020, the conversations remained steadfastly focused on student success and culminated in the development of College Goals and Facilities Planning Principles. These are the promises that we make to one another and to our communities that will guide our decision-making, strategic planning, and program review processes over the coming decade.

To our faculty, classified professionals, administration, and the Vision 2030 Task Force, I am grateful for your participation during this noteworthy year filled with challenges and opportunities for change. This work has strengthened our sense of community and our collective capabilities to serve and support. Without your commitment to the future of our institution, none of this work would have been accomplished. The Golden West family is proud of your contributions to VISION 2030. Collectively, we are excited for the future of our college.
