College Begins Planning Process
De Anza has begun a strategic planning process that will guide the college for the next five years, drawing on input from all constituencies and governance groups.
The process, initiated by President Lloyd Holmes in September, will culminate in a new Educational Master Plan that sets goals in line with the college’s Vision, Mission and Values, along with its Institutional Core Competencies.
Building on a review of enrollment, programs and outcomes, along with regional, state and national trends – all viewed through an equity lens – the plan will provide a road map for what the college would like to achieve by 2025-2026.
Faculty members, classified professionals, administrators and students are invited to participate through their governance groups and by attending a series of four workshops that will be held in December, January, February and March. Watch for an Outlook invitation to each one.
- Workshop No. 1: Overview, Data and Initiatives – Thursday, Dec. 2, Noon-1:30 p.m.
- Workshop No. 2: Supporting Cultural and Structural Equity Through Guided Pathways – Monday, Jan. 24, 1-2:30 p.m.
- Workshop No. 3: Regional Trends, Enrollment and Retention – Monday, Feb. 28, 1-2:30 p.m.
- Workshop No. 4: Ensuring Learning Through Student Success Factors – Monday, March 14, 1-2:30 p.m.
The strategic planning process will be coordinated by the College Planning Committee and three co-leads:
- Mallory Newell, Supervisor, Institutional Research and Planning: email@example.com
- Lydia Hearn, Interim Associate Vice President, Instruction: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Marisa Spatafore, Associate Vice President, Communications and External Relations: email@example.com
