Integrated Planning Committee

The Integrated Planning Committee (IPC) was researched via the Integrated Planning Task Force from Fall 2012 through Fall 2013. The Task Force presented its recommendation to College Council to establish a college Integrated Planning Committee and this was accepted and voted on at the October 10, 2013 College Council Meeting.

Charge and Responsibilities

The IPC will provide institutional-level planning priorities to the College President by using the Mission, Vision and Values Statements, Strategic Plans, Program Reviews, SLOs, institutional research, and accreditation documents as its focus.  The IPC will be informed by a variety of sources including district priorities, and State, Federal, and ACCJC* mandates, as required.

The responsibilities of the IPC will include, but are not limited to:

  1. Guide the institutional and strategic planning efforts, by establishing planning priorities
  2. Identify, review and revise, as necessary, processes for:
    1. Integrating the College strategic planning documents, including SLO and Program Review documents, into planning
    2. Integrating and communicating the planning priorities to committees for allocation purposes
    3. Integrating the assessment of institutional effectiveness into planning
  3. Provide direction to the Institutional Research office to generate the data and analysis necessary for the planning efforts needed by the college
  4. Review institutional responses to State, Federal and accreditation mandates to ensure incorporation into institutional planning
  5. Recommend planning priorities to the College President
  6. Communicate adopted planning priorities to the College and College Council
  7. Evaluate charge, tasks and membership on a regular basis
