(II.C.) Exercise Identifying a Core Value of the Maricopa
Gina Kranitz presented an exercise to the group to identify core values for the district. She noted that the core value is of the internal community and went through the tenets of core values in a system. Small groups were formed and asked to identify three core values for the district. It was noted that the purpose of this exercise would begin the thought process for the identification of a core value for the district, an important component to the strategic planning process.
Feedback from the small groups is as follows:
- Access to quality programs/services
- Mutual respect
- Promoting learning and encouraging the individual
- Provide low cost/high quality educational opportunities for all residents afforded by dedicated faculty, staff, and facilities
- Trust in individual abilities
- Individual as integral part of whole
The core values of the colleges will be gathered and looked at when looking at a core value for the district. The process to determine the core value will include discussions with various groups and scanning.
The meeting adjourned at 8:10 p.m.
