Reach and Rally Strategic Plan

It began with a SPARK! - to develop and implement a strategic plan focused on helping students complete credentials, transfer, and move on to jobs with labor market value in a timely manner.  Through months of research, meetings, and the hiring of Dr. Scott Ralls, we developed our new mission and strategic road map. 

As part of the planning process, we learned that the college needs to remain focused on equitable access and economic mobility. Using this information, we are now formulating detailed strategies. Thus, the SPARK! Planning Process has ended and we are moving forward with the Reach and Rally Strategic Planning Initiative. 

Reach and Rally Strategic Feedback Form

The Reach and Rally Strategic Planning Initiative converges on what is most important to Wake Tech.  Using the action ideas created by our own departments and divisions, we are drafting a strategic plan that empowers every employee to reach out and rally around our students to fulfill the mission and vision of the college.  


Wake Technical Community College provides equitable access to education that transforms lives through economic mobility and personal fulfillment. 


We will reach students in every part of Wake County and rally around them to go as far as their dreams, talents, and resilience take them.
