To ensure that the college’s strategic planning process is sound, collaborative, evidence-based, and sustainable; and that the Strategic Plan guides decision-making and activities that support improvement of institutional effectiveness and both student learning and success.

  • Dialogue about institutional effectiveness is ongoing, robust, and pervasive.
  • Data and analyses are widely communicated and used throughout the institution.
  • Ongoing review, evaluation and adaptation of planning processes.
  • Consistent and continuous commitment to improving student learning and success.
  • Educational effectiveness is a demonstrable priority in all planning structures and processes.


  • Inform and engage the campus community in strategic planning.
  • Evaluate all progress on the Strategic Plan and the strategic planning process annually and recommend revisions as appropriate.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of the college‚Äôs planning and resource allocation model and participatory governance committees and recommend revisions as appropriate.
