An overview is provided of the planning processes used at Okaloosa-Walton Community College (OWCC) in budgeting and curriculum, staff, and program development. First, the curriculum planning process is described in terms of its purpose; faculty, staff, and administrator involvement; educational goals for OWCC; the development of evaluation procedures; and the use of evaluation results. This section highlights the active participation of faculty, counselors, and librarians in the development and structuring of the official college purpose statement, as well as faculty roles in program design, syllabi development, and instruction. It also describes the support roles played by departmental staff and the decision-making roles of the dean of instruction and other instructional managers. Next, the same facets are discussed for staff and program development and budgeting. Finally, charts are provided to illustrate the planning process. (AJL)
