The materials you are about to see and activities you are about to participate in have been prepared by four practitioners who have nearly 100 years of combined experience in research and planning.

The materials are not a guarantee that your college’s planning processes will be magically transformed overnight but should provide some guidelines on how other colleges have integrated their planning processes in accordance with the ACCJC standards.

Please enjoy the show! 

bhag activity part 1
BHAG Activity – Part 1

Identify one or two BHAGs for your department/unit/division on campus that you want to accomplish over the next 2-3 years.

Why is this is a goal for your department/unit/division (i.e., provide a justification for this goal)?

What evidence have you collected to justify this goal? If no evidence has been collected, what evidence needs to be collected?

What resources are needed to achieve this goal (staff, budget, coordination with other departments, etc.)?

Is this goal documented in any other plans?

Individual units document planning efforts and accomplishments, annually.

Deans, Directors, and V.P.s summarize unit PIEs and submit report to e-PIE.

Summaries from IEC may be translated by PAC into new or revised college goals and strategies for upcoming year

PIE serves as the vehicle for aligning College goals and institutional processes for evaluation, planning and resource allocation.

IEC works with VPs to summarize annual planning efforts for the President’s Advisory Council (PAC).

Four VPs submit summaries, including resource requests, to Institutional Effectiveness Committee (IEC)

words of encouragement
Words of Encouragement

Don’t be afraid to fail.

In good times and in bad times.

It’s a cultural change – stick with it.

  • Budget development
  • Institutional Action Priorities from department plans

Developing expertise takes time. Start now because you will need to go through several iterations.

there is a silver lining
There is a Silver Lining!

You’re developing tools to make the process of integrating planning efficient.

It’s a disciplined process drawing from department plans.

People feel they have a voice in the planning process, are more engaged, and take ownership of their plans.

Integrated planning with budget results in better understanding of resource allocation amongst faculty and staff.
