Comprehensive Institutional Planning in Two-Year Colleges: A Planning Process and Case Study.
Van Ausdle, Steven L.
This second of two monographs dealing with comprehensive institutional planning is directed at institutional representatives involved in the planning process at two-year colleges. It contains (1) information on a step-by-step approach to developing and implementing a comprehensive planning process (chapters 1-3) and (2) a case study of planning activity at Walla Walla Community College (chapter 4). Chapter 1 identifies and explains requirements of an effective planning process, including a planning model and prerequisites to effective planning. Implementation of the planning process is discussed in chapter 2. A conceptual model developed within the framework of the Planning, Management, and Evaluation System is presented, and these three phases of the process explained in detail: planning (preplanning, strategic planning, operational planning), management (plan utilization), and evaluation (including monitoring). Chapter 3 focuses on vocational education planning and explains suggested steps in a program planning model. The purpose of chapter 4 is to delineate and describe planning and budgeting processes used by Walla Walla Community College. A preliminary evaluation is attempted. Among exhibits illustrating how other institutions approach various aspects of the planning is a description of Valencia Community College's needs assessment approach. (A second monograph in the series, available as CE 025 231, provides essential information for "planning to plan.") (YLB)
