This website provides a location for developing and articulating a vision of our community college educational environment and its connection to our financial environment. It originated as a space for posting a paper to support the long-range financial planning process at Lane Community College. This paper is the first link below. Ancillary postings related to it will be accessible from that page. As specific topics are developed or introduced more comprehensively, they can be accessed from this page.
