This page contains information related to institutional planning processes, policies, and procedures.
The comprehensive master planning process is implemented every ten years and involves envisioning what the institution is, what it does, and why it does it. The final result of the comprehensive planning process is the Comprehensive Master Plan, a document with a broad scope that brings together all institution’s sectors and is developed based on a long-range time perspective. The Comprehensive Master Plan is constituted by four plans: The Educational Master Plan (which serves as guide for developing the other three plans), the Technology Plan, the Facilities Plan, and the Staffing Plan.
The comprehensive planning process is led by a task force that is convened for this purpose. In the taskforce, there is representation of all El Camino College constituencies so that principles of integrated planning are appropriately implemented.View Comprehensive Master Plan 2017-22 Comprehensive Master Plan Evaluation Report
The strategic planning process takes place every five years and involves implementing selected aspects of the Comprehensive Master Plan. The final result of this process is the Strategic Plan, a document that operationalizes and articulates the four plans within the Comprehensive Master Plan (the Educational Master Plan, Technology Plan, Facilities Plan, and Staffing Plan). The Strategic Plan identifies the resources required to implement the first five years of the Comprehensive Master Plan, the responsible leads, stakeholders involved, performance indicators and targets. Within the comprehensive planning process, two strategic planning processes take place, resulting in two strategic plans, one for the first five years, and another one for the second five-year period.
The strategic planning process is led by a task force that is convened for this purpose. In the taskforce, all El Camino College constituencies are represented so that principles of integrated planning are appropriately implemented.View Strategic Plan 2015-18 Strategic Initiatives Evaluation Report
Some institutional-level plans revolve around cross-cutting issues which should be addressed by all levels of the Institution. By clearly articulating the priorities around these cross-cutting issues, these related plans encourage coordination and participation at all levels of the Institution.
