Goal B: Enhance Institutional Effectiveness

Objective B5 - Evaluate, integrate, and improve planning, resource allocation and other processes critical to institutional effectiveness.

Strategy: B5-E

To meet Accreditation requirements, maintain comprehensive Program Planning in staggered cycles for all departments throughout the college.

Project Leader:  President

The Outcomes Assessment Review Committee (OARC) met on May 14, 2013, and forwarded the following recommendations to Cabinet:

1.   Each component (Instruction, Student Services, Administrative Services and the President's component) should develop a staggered program planning schedule for its administrative units.  We recommend using the template for program planning that OARC developed (based on Instruction but simplified) which incorporates the assessment of AUOs and using the results of that assessment for goals and recommendations.

2. We recommend that the AUOs be assessed twice during the 6 year program planning cycle, once at 3 years and again at 6 years.

3. We recommend that each department complete an annual report each year.  We have a template based on Instruction's annual report.

2. Develop a staggered, comprehensive, six-year cycle with annual updates for all departments undergoing Administrative/non-Instructional Program Planning. (IB)
