What is Hawk Vision?

Hawk Vision is an initiative to nurture creative ideas and launch intrapreneurial projects that drive the mission of MVCC. Not just a think tank, Hawk Vision is a value-added action tank designed to bring great ideas to life.

Hawk Vision was formed to equip the MVCC community to fully realize the college mission, "to provide accessible, high-quality educational opportunities to meet the diverse needs of our students," and vision, "to transform lives through learning." In a short time, community colleges have transformed from a novel, experimental sector of higher education into the largest and most diverse sector of higher education in the United States. Increasing challenges come in the form of resources, competitors, and constituencies’ demands that constrain capacity, as well as fundamental shifts in the external environment that are bringing constant change to the way community colleges function.

Hawk Vision will provide the much-needed structure to facilitate a campus dialogue that is focused on organizational learning about alternative futures, disruptive innovation, and strategies for transformation. The goal is to facilitate institutional growth and encourage a culture that embraces change. MVCC must be agile to stay ahead of the trends. Innovative ideas that arise through the use of predictive analytics and forecasting tools will propel the Institution toward positive change in the pursuit of its mission fulfillment.
