The College Planning Council (CPC) is Ventura College's participatory governance group charged with overseeing the campus program review and strategic planning efforts. The CPC is comprised of faculty, classifieds, classified supervisors, administrators and students. Only faculty, students and classifieds may vote at CPC and all these constituencies make appointments to the CPC via their respective Senates (or, in the case of students, ASG). Details about the committee charge, composition and chair structure can be found at the bottom of this page.
The CPC meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month of the academic year in MCW-312 from 3:00-4:30 pm. During one week in November, the CPC will hear each division's presentations for program review, program discontinuance and appeals. This year the CPC will hear program review presentations on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, November 5, 6 and 7, from 3:00-5:00 pm in MCW-312.
