After several months of collecting stakeholder feedback, planning, and support from consulting firm Student-Ready Strategies, GIA is pleased to release a new strategic plan. The plan aims to align regional work and point the way forward for achieving GIA’s mission and vision for the next 5-years.  

GIA’s 5-Year Report (2015-2020) shows how the region successfully pursued their five regional goals over the past five years. As part of the new strategic plan, GIA has released five new regional goals that address this new era in education.   

The pandemic and other exogeneous factors have transformed the educational industry. Despite this transformation, GIA and the region have incredible assets to help students succeed. GIA’s strategic plan describes the strategies and tactics to pursue regional goals by using these assets. 

Despite this transformation, the Inland Empire region has incredible assets to help students succeed. GIA’s strategic plan describes the strategies and tactics to pursue regional goals by using these assets and making progress towards a shared vision for the region. 

The new strategic plan outlines GIA’s mission, vision, and values. It also lays out two types of strategies to pursue regional goals: cross-cutting and goal-specific strategies. Cross-cutting strategies are broad, large-scale strategies that map to and support all organizational goals. Goal-specific strategies are clear-cut strategies that pair precisely with an individual goal. 

Both strategy types approach our regional goals in achievable and measurable ways. GIA selected a set of metrics to assess large-scale progress toward the new organizational goals in consultation with cross-sector regional professionals (GIA Data ANT) and Student-Ready Strategies.
