The purpose of this Strategic Planning area of our Web site is to provide the members of the College of the Marshall Islands community with the opportunity to learn about and participate in the strategic planning process at CMI, and to provide all interested stakeholders with up-to-date information about the planning process. Currently, we are in the process of finalizing the development of a 2012-17 Strategic Plan to guide the college's decision-making, budgeting and day-to-day operations for the next five years. Should you have any questions about or feedback to share related to the process, please contact us via email to email@example.com.
