    Blinn officials are inviting members of the community to complete a brief online survey that seeks input regarding the college’s current mission and vision statements. It also asks respondents to identify Blinn’s core values, strengths and challenges.

    The survey is available at:, and will remain open through Monday, Feb. 13.
    “A strong strategic plan lays the roadmap for Blinn’s continued success as one of the premier community colleges in Texas,” said Mary Hensley, district president/CEO. “A clear vision for the future benefits Blinn students, employees, and the communities we serve.”
    Blinn Board of Trustees president David Sommer called public participation “a crucial aspect of the strategic planning process.”
    “The insights and perspectives we gather through this survey will help Blinn College craft its blueprint for the next four years,” Sommer said.
