Cañada College Planning Process

The Planning and Budgeting Committee (PBC) oversees and facilitates the institution's planning processes.  For some plans, such as the Educational Master Plan, the PBC will appoint a special task force to lead the process, develop the plan, and return to the full PBC and all campus constituencies for review and discussion.  Most other college plans are in the purview of the relevant committee (e.g., Distance Education Advisory Committee leads the development of the Distance Education Plan).  For those plans, the planning and evaluation process can be found here. As of 2020, PBC established the following bylaw template and college plan template for all college-wide committees to implement no later than the start of their new planning cycle. Program Planning is part of the College's annual Comprehensive Program Review process.
