Big Meeting 2009-10 & Strategic Goal Teams
The College Planning Council, working in collaboration with the Office of Institutional
Assessment, planned a Big Meeting for March 19, 2010. The Big Meeting is an important
component both of the College’s Institutional Effectiveness effort and of the annual evaluation of
progress toward the goals and objectives in our Strategic Plan.
At the 2010 Big Meeting, college leaders from the faculty, professional staff, career
service staff, and administration were invited by the President to consider the baseline data
gathered for use in evaluating the Strategic Plan for 2008-13, and review the plans developed by
the various divisions and departments of the college that are aimed at achieving the strategic
goals and objectives.
The Big Meeting provided the opportunity to identify and make recommendations to the
President about any missing pieces of the work to be done to achieve the strategic goals and
objectives, to make recommendations regarding how the work might best be sequenced and
coordinated, and to recommend any changes the group may deem advisable to the 2008-13
strategic goals and objectives and/or the evaluation plan.
The College Planning Council provided a report to the President and the District Board of
Trustees after the Big Meeting, updating the Trustees on progress made during the 2009-10 year.
Four strategic goal teams prepared recommendations for consideration at the Big Meeting during November 2009 - March 2010. The charge to the Goal Teams is reproduced below.
