“Lazer Focus” Onondaga Community College 2016-2021 Strategic Plan

OCC has just completed the process of putting together its 2016-2021 Strategic Plan which will help guide the College through its next five years of serving students and the community. This plan is the product of a year-long collaboration between faculty, staff and students. The areas of emphasis in the new Strategic Plan, which is titled “Lazer Focus,” are as follows:



  • Provide students with equitable access to a clear and well-aligned path to their goals for success.


  • Position students for success by implementing research validated methods and other high impact practices for early and ongoing student engagement in the educational process.


  • Improve student transitions to college by strengthening relationships with PreK-12 and community partners.

OCC’s first institutional core value is “keep students at the center of all we do.” They emphasize the following: We are proud of our mission, our focus and our vision for the future of Central New York. We eagerly look forward to all of the possibilities before us.
