Strategic Planning

​​​​Planning & Institutional Effectiveness


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 student learning and success. This purpose is consistent with the Sustainable Continuous Quality Improvement level in the Accrediting Commission's planning rubric which includes the following criteria:


  • The institution uses ongoing and systematic evaluation of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and planning to refine its key processes and improve student learning. 
  • Dialogue about institutional effectiveness that is ongoing, robust, and pervasive.
  • Data and analyses are widely communicated and used throughout the institution.
  • Document ongoing review and adaptation of evaluation and planning processes.
  • Consistent and continuous commitment to improving student learning and success.
  • Educational effectiveness is a demonstrable priority in all planning structures and processes.


  • Twice each academic year, create a KPI Progress Report by evaluating the KPIs based on quantitative and qualitative data sources such as results of program reviews, student learning outcomes assessments (SLOs, PSLOs, ISLOs) and other appropriate sources.
  • Based on the KPI Progress Report, make recommendations to the College Advisory Council (CAC) that will promote improvements on the KPIs.
  • Inform and engage the campus community in strategic planning.
  • Evaluate all components of the Strategic Plan and the strategic planning process annually and recommend revisions as appropriate.

Committee Goals

  • Identify campus-wide leads for components of the Strategic Plan.
  • Develop continuous and systematic evaluation processes for the Strategic Plan and the strategic planning process as they relate to student learning and success.
