Strategic Planning

In order to develop a shared vision of the future that faculty, staff, students and the community understand and support, the District, through its participatory governance processes, has been working to develop an integrated strategic planning model. This model will incorporate and build upon five elements: the District's Strategic Plan; the Facilities Master Plan; a coordinated institutional research component; a coordinated program review process; and an annual budget that is based upon the other four elements.
