College Committees, Councils and Task Forces


Long Term Budget Process


 The Strategic Planning Committee (SPC) has developed a framework linking the college mission / strategic directions with program review and budget processes:

Text Box: College Mission and
Strategic Directions



  Text Box: Accountability:
Program Review Process
Text Box: Budget Development and Management Process



 SPC developed this model based on two important principles:

  1. Budget development and management should be tied directly to the college’s mission and goals.
  2. The accountability process (program review) should be continuous, transparent and college-wide, and it should inform budget decisions.

The Framework of SPC bases program evaluation on strategic directions and provides information to inform budget decisions.

  While the framework requires further development and campus input, its status as a collaborative SPC product and its attention to the linkages described above support its use to address short-term budget decisions.
