CCHM Strategic Plan 2017-2021

Strategic Plan

Cal Poly Pomona launched a new strategic planning initiative in winter quarter 2016. Adopted in September 2017, the CPP Strategic Plan 2017-2021 charts the university’s course for the next several years while also identifying top academic and campus initiatives and the resources and facilities to achieve those objectives.

In September 2017, The Collins College completed strategic planning to support CPP's efforts and released its 2017-2021 Strategic Plan. It refreshes our focus and invigorates our work in supporting CPP's success and impact, as we move together as a campus and community toward 2021.
