The Instructional Planning Council (IPC) develops, implements, evaluates continuously and revises, if necessary, Instruction’s plans and initiatives, both long- and short-term. A three-year planning cycle is used to implement the Instruction Strategic Plan. An Annual Implementation Plan outlines the tasks and actions to be accomplished during the upcoming year. The Instructional Planning Council reports its actions, makes recommendations and requests related to the Instruction Plan and to policies and procedures related to Instruction in response to the changing needs of the student population, business and industry, and the internal and external environment. Based on plans, determine staffing needs.
*For prioritizing faculty positions, IPC will convene a subcommittee to develop each year’s prioritized list of faculty positions for discussion and endorsement by IPC who will then forward the recommendation to SPC. The subcommittee is composed of the seven (7) faculty serving on IPC, the five (5) instructional deans, and two (2) faculty appointed by Faculty Senate.
