Comprehensive Integrated Planning Process


The Comprehensive Integrated Plan (CIP) provides a roadmap to inform everything that El Camino College will do to support student access and improve student success. It serves to guide planning, decision-making, and resource allocation at all levels of the College.  El Camino College is currently in the middle of developing a new CIP which will impact the College from 2024 to 2034.

Participants in the CIP Development Process

For a truly impactful and transformative Comprehensive Integrated Plan, the CIP development process should involve the entire El Camino College community! 

To help with coordination, members of a Strategy Steering Committee (SSC) will serve as the primary Campus representatives throughout the CIP process. The Strategy Steering Committee members will meet throughout the Comprehensive Integrated Planning process to:

  • Provide information and insight to guide the Comprehensive Integrated Planning process.
  • Refine drafts and serve as a conduit to articulate the needs of their constituents while recognizing the needs of other stakeholders to collaboratively support College-wide interests. 

For a more efficient process, a subgroup of the Strategy Steering Committee, the CIP Working Group, will propose initial rough drafts for discussion with the larger Strategy Steering Committee.

In addition, several other working groups with specific areas of focus will be developing recommendations to support the Comprehensive Integrated Plan.  These specific areas of focus are called planning tracks and include: Facilities, Technology, and Safety & Security.

Any proposals from the Strategy Steering Committee will be shared and refined by the broader Campus community through a series of Campus-wide meetings.
