Strategic Planning Council


The Strategic Planning Council conducts ongoing review and evaluation of the college’s strategic plan. SPC routinely solicits broad feedback from various campus constituencies, among them the College Senate, the Council of Chairs, the Student Association. Membership consists of presidential appointees and elected members representing the faculty, staff, students, alumni, and community. SPC considers the strategic plan's priorities and implementation, and assesses outcomes. Twice per semester, SPC meets with Cabinet to share its findings and recommend changes to the strategic plan.


SPC includes three subcommittees that undertake tasks in support of the overall charge. The Performance Indicators Committee develops tools for use in gauging the college's progress toward fulfilling its mission. The Outreach Committee organizes and conducts activities to gain deeper understanding of campus community members' attitudes and opinions regarding the strategic priorities. The Communication Committee presents information about the SPC's work to the campus.

SPC also includes six liaison groups, one related to each pillar of the strategic plan. Liaisons engage with individuals and groups who are charged with accomplishing a particular strategic goal assigned by Cabinet, and bring discussion items to the SPC.
