Dear Campus Community,
I would like to share information about a critical endeavor we will undertake this year. As a college community, we will create a new Educational Master Plan (EMP). The plan will provide direction to the college instruction and support service areas on what we want to accomplish over the next five years.
Last month, the EMP team and the President’s Cabinet dedicated an entire day discussing ways to create engaged, meaningful and active approaches to the planning process. The goal of the EMP team is to establish an open planning process that includes several opportunities for the campus community to participate and provide input. The first opportunity was at Cañada Opening Day on Tuesday, August 16. At that time, the EMP team provided an overview of the timeline for the next year as well as a ‘kick off’ activity to generate input for the plan.
I encourage all members of the College to participate in the following EMP meetings, which are open to everyone:
This process presents an opportunity to develop a living document identifying programs, services, and initiatives to effectively serve our students and our community. As a new member of the Cañada family, I look forward to using the EMP process as a way to learn more about our college and work together to shape our future in a dynamic way.
It’s an exciting time as our entire college gathers, collectively, to build the pathway to Cañada’s educational roadmap. Thank you, in advance, for the support of our EMP team and for your participation in this process to create this integral guide for our institution.
Jamillah Moore, Ed.D.
