On May 12, 2017, the Academics Team of Roosevelt College, Inc. (RCI), led by RCI vice president (VP) for academic affairs Gillian Joyce Virata with the campus heads, principals, and academic supervisors gathered for an initial strategic planning workshop. FEU VP for human resource Renato Serapio facilitated the activity.
The one-day workshop enabled participants to review and affirm the newly proposed vision-mission statements and do an
environmental scan using the institutional development framework or the tri-pod model (See figure below) through an analysis of institutional strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) externally and internally.
“The group was able to do a good self assessment,” remarked VP Serapio after the presentation and discussion of the SWOT analysis.
RCI Marikina campus head Teresa Angeles described the planning as “very engaging” and added that, “It gave us one day to look at RCI from all vantage points, reassess procedures and work flow, and start strategizing for a better RCI starting SY2017–SY2018.
At the start of the workshop, VP Virata urged everyone to look inward as an institution and ask, “Do we have what it takes to realize RCI’s vision and mission?” She reiterated the value of working together with real respect to make RCI a better place for everyone in the institution.
Workshop participants discussed, agreed, and worked on the strategic planning requirements.
