A Model for Long Range Planning for Seminole Community College.
A model for long-range planning designed to maximize involvement of college personnel, to improve communication among various areas of the college, to provide a process for evaluation of long-range plans and the planning process, to adjust to changing conditions, to utilize data developed at a level useful for actual operations, and to have utility in meeting internal and external long-range planning requirements is described in this paper. Use of the model requires only two college committees, one composed of the directors of the instructional areas, the director of library services, and a representative of the student development office, and the other composed of the college president and his cabinet. The first committee establishes the basic planning document and the second reviews the document and suggests revisions where appropriate. The management systems officer, not a member of either committee, is responsible for providing necessary data to both committees, converting information in the committees' plan into data for use in the program budget model, operating the program budget model, and serving as a consultant to the committees. This model is felt to reduce many of the shortcomings associated with the planning process while insuring maximum participation/representation of various college constituencies. A flow chart of the model is included. (JDS)
