SCC North Mankato Campus to host Charting the Future Gallery Walk on April 2

(March 30, 2015) On Thursday, April 2 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. South Central College’s North Mankato campus will host a Charting the Future Gallery Walk to get feedback from the campus community about the work of four implementation teams: (1) Academic Planning & Collaboration, (2) Education Technology, (3) Information Technology Systems Design and (4) Competency Certification & Credit for Prior Learning. Dr. Annette Parker, president of South Central College, serves as Convener for the Competency Certification & Credit for Prior Learning implementation team.

Last fall, various colleges and universities hosted similar Gallery Walks and provided feedback on the first four Charting the Future implementation teams: Student Success, Diversity, Comprehensive Workplace Solutions and System Incentives & Rewards. The feedback that was provided can be viewed at www.chartingthefuturemnscu.com/gallery-walk/gallery-walk-responses/.

The eight teams and the Gallery Walks are all part of Charting the Future, the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities strategic planning process.  The eight implementation teams were formed to act on six recommendations developed with input from more than 5,000 students, faculty and staff and adopted by the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Board of Trustees in November 2013.

The four implementation teams featured in the Gallery Walks last fall are currently in the process of reviewing their Gallery Walk information and refining their initial ideas and concepts. Teams featured in the Gallery Walks this spring are expected to receive their Gallery Walk feedback in May and will review and make refinements to their initial ideas and concepts over the summer and in early fall.

More information will be available at chartingthefuturemnscu.com as work on Charting the Future continues. Individuals interested in the process are encouraged to attend one of the 39 Gallery Walks happening across the state in person, provide feedback via the Online Gallery Walk (available through April 8), send feedback to This email address is being protected from spambots.
