Blinn College Strategic Plan 2013-2016

Harold Nolte, EdDSince Blinn College first opened its doors in 1883, it has been committed to being an educational leader, not only in the Brazos Valley but throughout the state of Texas. Our commitment to educational excellence and individual and community enhancement is reflected in our accomplishments over the past 130 years. To maintain our place as one of the premier community colleges in the nation, we must continue to plan for the future with both short- and long-term planning and a clear, streamlined vision for our College’s future. Through a process involving students, faculty, staff, and community stakeholders, we have identified the following institutional priorities.


Strategic Priority: Student Success

  • Goal: Improve processes to support a seamless student experience
  • Goal: Enhance student skills to support academic achievement
  • Goal: Prepare students to meet workforce needs
  • Goal: Foster personal responsibility, social responsibility and teamwork among students

Strategic Priority: Community Enhancement

  • Goal: Be an economic resource in the communities we serve

Strategic Priority: Human Capital

I am confident that through this planning process we have created a strong foundation that will strengthen our relationships with the students, employees and communities we serve. I look forward to utilizing this plan to aid us in future decision-making as we build upon 130 years of proud tradition and affordable academic excellence.
