Master and Strategic Plan

Destination 2030 logo

The development of the Master & Strategic Plan is a collaborative process that drives key decision-making for the college over a seven-year period. From the beginning, the planning process incorporates stakeholder input to develop a plan that adequately reflects the pressing needs of the college’s dynamic service area. This concerted approach

allows the college to serve more students, build stronger partnerships, and make more of a lasting impact on the communities served.


Stakeholders involved throughout the planning process include students, employees, the college’s Academic Governance Strategic (AGS) Planning Council, industry experts, community leaders, and elected officials. Through combined stakeholder input and a variety of extensive market studies, college leadership developed a comprehensive plan that represents the college’s vibrant and fast-growing community, while incorporating key elements to ensure relevance and competitiveness as a higher education institution. 


Known as Destination 2030, the Master Plan is a comprehensive outlook for all college facilities and programming, and the accompanying Strategic Goals focus on objectives and stretch goals for future initiatives. Both plans work together to deliver a seven-year roadmap for the college.  


In August 2023, the Collin College Board of Trustees adopted a 2023-2030 Master & Strategic Plan, as follows:
