Educational Master Plan


What is an Educational Master Plan?

An Educational Master Plan (EMP) creates a road map for where we as a college want to be, devises strategies to help us reach these goals, and means to measure our success along the way.  An EMP helps us to make decisions, to link budget and planning, and to link the many different planning activities that take place on campus. Writing a new EMP requires a synthesis of our vision, mission, and core values with data about enrollment, community demographics, labor market projections, and student needs.

EMP Revision 2007-2008

In 2007, the college's EMP Committee (a subcommitee of the Academic Senate) began the process of drafting an new Education Master Plan.  In Spring 2008, the STRATUS team was brought on board to help with the process.
