Strategic Planning

Bridgerland Applied Technology College (BATC) is one of eight colleges that comprise the Utah College of Applied Technology (UCAT). BATC provides industry driven, career education in an open-entry/open-exit, individualized, competency-based format. This unique format allows each student to master required skills at his or her personal learning pace.

BATC undergoes an annual strategic planning process in compliance with the Council on Occupational Education (COE) accreditation standards. In this 2016-2021 strategic planning cycle, a new element of aligning with the State of Utah’s nine educational anchors was introduced. BATC’s eight core objectives were developed to align directly with the State of Utah anchors.

BATC utilized a new team approach in developing the strategies in each of the eight objectives. Teams comprised of faculty, staff, students and administrative members who worked diligently to identify both opportunities and challenges facing BATC in the next five years. This resulted in a common philosophy, a unified sense of direction, priorities for change, and a blueprint for action. While campus objectives and strategies are always subject to change in order to address opportunities and challenges, the strategic planning process provides clear direction for the future of this institution.

This Strategic Plan was compiled from strategic planning team meetings and administrative vision; presented to faculty, staff, and Administration; reviewed for priorities, timelines, and costs; and were presented to the BATC Board of Directors for final adoption.
