COLLEGE OF THE SEQUOIAS INTEGRATED PLANNING APPROACH
Supporting the College Mission Statement our integrated planning approach is anchored by and with our 2010-2015 Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan is a dynamic document that contains 144 objectives with measureable outcomes and assessments framed within 6 Areas of Focus: Student Access, Student’s Completing Their Education, Students’ Mastery of Basic Skills, Efficient and Effective College Practices, Students as Citizens of a Global Community, Economic Growth of Tulare and Kings’ Counties.
All of our goals and plans (Facilities Plan, Student Equity Plan, Basic Skills Initiative, etc.) throughout the district address at least one of the measureable outcomes of the Strategic Plan. This includes Program Review. During the Program Review process, the goals established by the individual program whether for a comprehensive or a bi-annual review must identify one of the objectives contained within the Strategic Plan. Additionally, the Strategic Plan is cross-walked to one of the four Accreditation Standards.
The Strategic Plan is continually assessed by the Institutional Planning Committee for revisions, and implementation. An annual report is made to participatory governance entities, The Board of Trustees, and the community.
