Utilizing external and internal scans and other planning documents, decisions are made about the strategic directions of the college and the goals and strategies needed to move in those directions. Once a strategic plan is finalized, it will largely inform budgeting and other resource allocation decisions in conjunction with the needs of instructional programs and administrative units on campus as expressed in completed Program and Administrative Unit Reviews. The strategic plan will not predetermine decisions. Instead, it will provide a guide or framework within which decision making will take place.
