Bakersfield College Utilizes Collegiate Consulting in Comprehensive Strategic Planning Process

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (August 14, 2018) – Collegiate Consulting recently completed a comprehensive strategic planning process for Bakersfield College, assisting Bakersfield President Sonya Christian and the athletic department with a comprehensive operational review and strategic plan.

“Collegiate Consulting had a thorough process and was invaluable in helping Bakersfield College develop a strategic plan for Bakersfield Athletics,” Dr. Christian said. “Through a review of benchmarking and data, along with interviews and focus groups from internal and external constituents, the level of understanding created has been invaluable throughout this process.”

Collegiate Consulting, through a series of on-campus interviews, benchmarking and external research, worked with Bakersfield College athletics senior staff to identify key themes, goals and strategies across every area of the department.  The primary themes of the plan include: Academic and Athletic Excellence, Student-Athlete Experience, Organizational Excellence, Maximizing Revenue and Facilities and Strengthening Marketing and Community Engagement.

 “Working closely with President Christian and Athletic Director Sandi Taylor, we were challenged with helping Bakersfield Athletics develop a comprehensive strategic plan for the future,” said Russell Wright, Founder and Managing Partner for Collegiate Consulting. “We used every aspect of our process to assemble this plan.”
