Strategic Planning Committee

The District Strategic Planning Committee serves as the districtwide vehicle for initiating and coordination of districtwide strategic planning in order to ensure good communication and effective oversight of planning processes, as well as an effective, complementary balance in planning activities between the District as a whole and the Colleges and Continuing Education.

The District Strategic Planning Committee is a standing committee composed of individuals who function as an informed, collegial planning group that supports and reviews the outcomes of the institutional planning processes of the Colleges; reviews the needs of the San Diego community and region in relationship to districtwide planning; and recommends planning outcomes. The Committee reports to the District Governance Council and the Chancellor’s Cabinet.
