PURPOSE OF ANNUAL PLANNING
The purpose of the annual unit plan is to identify growth and improvement needs at the operational level, and then provide a data-informed decision about resources required to meet identified needs. The annual unit plan focuses on a one-year timeframe, directly linked to resource allocations. Each unit, division and area will engage in a continuous cycle of planning, implementation, and evaluation. In the annual plan, units, divisions, and areas will assess and report on progress toward goals (evaluation). We begin our planning process with unit planning, using the Strategic Initiative module (SIM) within eLumen to document our planning process for the year, in accordance with Standard I.B.9. from the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior College (ACCJC).
