College Planning Council


Charge:  The College Planning Council is a participatory governance committee that monitors college compliance with Accreditation Standard I.  As part of the college planning, program review and budget allocation cycle, the College Planning Council reviews the Educational, Facilities, and Technology Master Plans and calls for their revision in accordance with an established cycle; proposes a limited number of three-year strategic goals based on the Educational Master Plan to form the basis for the college’s Strategic Plan; establishes the college planning parameters each spring; recommends priority lists for new programs and initiatives that emerge through the annual planning and program review process; responds to administration’s recommendations for program growth, reduction and discontinuance; and contributes to the development of the college’s Annual Report by documenting the progress made on the Strategic Plan.  The Faculty Staffing Priorities Committee, a subcommittee of the Academic Senate, prioritizes recommendations for growth faculty positions.  The Classified Staffing Priorities Committee, a subcommittee of the Classified Senate, prioritizes recommendations for growth classified positions.  The faculty Co-Chair of the College Planning Council serves as a member of the Accreditation Steering Committee.
