Within the college, the planning process leads to the consolidation of planning lists from the various divisions, units, and areas. This combined, re-prioritized list has been called the Institutional Plan. An intermediate step in this consolidation would entail Instructional unit heads (division chairs and unit heads) meeting to discuss and prioritize items from each of their planning lists into a single instructional plan. The support areas, which include Student Services, Academic Services, Administrative Services, and Institutional Support complete their own prioritized planning lists.
At this point, the reconstituted and reprioritized lists from Instruction, Student Services, Academic Services, Administrative Services, and Institutional Support are turned over to the administrative team for review, and that group modifies, selects, and prioritizes items, recombining them into a draft Institutional Plan for the college.
This Institutional Plan is presented to Campus Council for review, discussion, and re-prioritizing if needed. The Campus Council approves a final Institutional Plan and recommends it the Chancellor.
