The Planning Committee works with the Planning and Budget Teams to draft a schedule that will guide planning each year.
Assessment of Shared Governance
Each shared governance group is asked to annually reflect on their processes through three targeted questions each spring. The results of the reflections are published in the annual Educational Master Plan Update and inform the college's planning processes.
Assessment of Institutional Metrics
Each fall the College Planning Committee reviews and assesses the Institutional Metrics. If any metrics are found to be falling behind, in that we believe the current rate of growth will not meet the Master Plan goal set for 2020, the Committee notifies College Council. At that time, College Council determines ways in which the college can address the Institutional Metric in order to meet the Master Plan goal by 2020. Six metrics have been identified and Academic Senate is working with the appropriate groups to help increase our rates in these areas.
