WCJC Strategic Plan


Wharton County Junior College will ensure that our diverse student population receives the highest level of educational opportunities through well-designed transfer and workforce pathways, which allow students to reach their personal goals while shaping the future of the communities we serve.



  • Integrity:  We are dedicated to being open, honest, and responsible in our actions and words.  These tenets provide the foundation for everything we do, as individuals and as a college community.
  • Quality: We strive to provide an environment of educational excellence and rigor. This environment is shaped by the long-term goals of the students and communities we serve.
  • Commitment: We are steadfast in the pursuit of our goals, both for ourselves and for our students.
  • Student-Focused: We value our students beyond all else. We build trusting relationships grounded in fairness, respect, and accountability.


Institutional Goals

The Wharton County Junior College Strategic Plan is founded upon three overarching institutional goals:

Foster Student Engagement and Improve Student Success

WCJC will provide students with exceptional educational opportunities and support services that foster increased student engagement, persistence, and success.


Expand Our Capacity to Serve Students and Impact Our Communities

WCJC will expand our capacity to serve students across our service area by strategically developing, utilizing, and optimizing all institutional processes, facilities, and resources.


Improve Our Institutional Agility through Technological Innovation and a Focus on the Future

WCJC must enhance our ability to respond in an ever-changing educational environment through an increased focus on technological innovation and a focus on the future.

Student Success Metrics

A comprehensive set of Student Success Metrics have been identified to help monitor progress toward the achievement of the goals associated with the WCJC Strategic Plan and evaluate student performance and success.  An annual summary of these Student Success Metrics is provided to the campus community to promote awareness of outcomes and facilitate discussions regarding future actions.
