Planning is the process by which the college accomplishes its mission. It occurs and benefits everyone at all levels of the college, from the smallest office to the college as a whole. Through the planning process, college areas, units, departments, and offices plan for the next academic year by creating and monitoring action items to be accomplished. Planning focuses the activities of the college to achieve its mission and Educational Master Plan. Effetive planning improves the efficiency with which the college functions, avoids conflicting goals among college offices and helps individuals make better-informed decisions about allocation of resources and the future of the college.
The highest level of planning is the Educational Master Plan (EMP) and the colleges's Mission which guides the entire college during the planning process.
Area Plan. There are four areas: Instructional, Administrative Services, Student and Learning Services, and the President's. Area plans set the tone and the direction of the college for the next academic year.
Unit Plan. The unit level is the main planning level for the college where specific actions and activities are developed that align with the EMP and Area Plans.
Operational Plan. Operational plans can be disciplines within a unit, such as the Psychology and History in the Social Sciences unit, or they can be offices within a unit, such as the Registration Office within the Admissions and Records unit, or Grounds within the Facilities
