The College Planning Council and its Committees and Subcommittees support the development of institutional college-wide plans that include goals, strategies and objectives to accomplish the college’s mission.
2016-2022 Strategic Plan
The 2016-2022 Strategic Plan was developed by the Strategic Plan Oversight Task Force, a Task Force of the College Planning Council, with broad input from constituent groups throughout the 2015-16 academic year. The Strategic Plan includes the College’s mission statement, values, and four main goals: Innovate to Achieve Equitable Student Success, Accelerate College Readiness and Close Equity Gaps, Build Community, and Invest in People and Support Structures for Transformation. The Strategic Plan is the overarching plan for the college and the guiding document for all other levels of planning. The College Planning Council and the Long Beach Community College District Board of Trustees approved the Strategic Plan at the end of spring 2016. A new strategic plan is developed every five years.
2020 -2023 Strategic Enrollment Management Plan
The Enrollment Management Oversight Committee, which reports to the College Planning Council, developed the Strategic Enrollment Management Plan. The plan is aligned with the College’s Strategic Plan goals, Chancellor’s Office Vision for Success, and the College’s mission and values. This three-year plan is structured in the Guided Pathways Framework with goals, three-year and one-year metrics, and representative activities aligned to each guided pathways pillar (Explore, Launch, Navigate, and Land). Each year, the Committee reviews progress toward achievement of the goals and metrics. Progress toward achievement of the goals and metrics is shared with the College Planning Council and the Board of Trustees. A new Strategic Enrollment Management Plan is developed every 3 years.
2018-2021 Technology Plan
The Information Technology Advisory Committee, which reports to the College Planning Council, developed the Technology Plan. This three-year plan focuses on five major technology priorities for the college: emerging technologies, accessible information, service integration, data security, and reliable infrastructure. A new Technology Plan is developed every 3 years.
2016-2041 Facilities Master Plan
The Facilities Advisory Committee, working with Administrative and Business Services and a Consulting Group (Facilities Planning & Program Services, Inc.) developed the Facilities Master Plan. The plan was presented in 2016 to the College Planning Council and Board of Trustees. This comprehensive long-term plan includes a master plan schedule that delineates the time frames in which each facilities project is expected to occur through the year 2041. A new plan will be developed prior to 2041.
Annual Guided Pathways Self-Assessment
The Guided Pathways Coordinating Team and Viking Pathways Task Force, which reports to the College Planning Council, develop an annual Guided Pathways Self-Assessment, which is submitted to the Chancellor’s Office. The Self Assessment is a multi-page reflection on the College’s progress on scaling each aspect of guided pathways. The Self Assessment is shared at a College Planning Council meeting prior to submission.
2019-2022 Adult Education Consortium Plan
The Long Beach Adult Education Consortium, consisting of Long Beach City College (including the Adult Education Subcommittee), Long Beach Unified School District School for Adults, and Community Partners developed the three-year Adult Education Consortium Plan. The Consortium identified four main goals to meet by 2022: Leverage consortium resources and partnerships to strategically recruit students, create diverse programming to meet the community’s needs, meet the workforce demands of a changing economy, and streamline access to services provided by consortium partners and community members to ensure seamless transitions and supports for students. This plan was shared at the College Planning Council and with the Board of Trustees prior to submission to the Chancellor’s Office.
2019-2022 Student Equity Plan
The intent of the Student Equity Plan is to guide the college’s work in closing achievement gaps for disproportionately impacted student groups. This plan was developed through the Student Equity Subcommittee. The first part of the plan includes baseline data and high-level goals related to access (i.e., successful enrollment), retention (i.e., fall to spring), completion of transfer-level math and English, degree and certificate completion, and transfer. The plan also delineates the activities the college plans to implement to achieve each goal. The second part of the plan addresses equity and outlines the college’s disproportionately impacted student groups for each metric, sets goals, and designates focused, intentional activities to achieve those goals for specific disproportionately impacted groups. The plan was shared with the Student Success Committee, College Planning Council, Academic Senate, and the Board of Trustees prior to submission to the Chancellor’s Office.
2018 Integrated Energy Master Plan
The Integrated Energy Master Plan is intended to provide a comprehensive roadmap and set of design recommendations to achieve Zero Net Energy (ZNE) for existing and new buildings by 2025. A consultant (DLR Group) worked with key stakeholders at Long Beach City College, as well as the Facilities Advisory Committee and other consulting groups to develop the plan. The goals of the plan support the college’s Facilities Master Plan and augment Long Beach City College’s ongoing efforts toward energy efficiency.
2019 – 2022 Equal Employment Opportunity Plan
The Faculty & Staff Diversity Committee, which is the College’s Equal Opportunity Advisory Committee, reports to the College Planning Council, develops the Equal Employment Opportunity Plan. This three-year plan demonstrates the College’s commitment to equal employment opportunity. The plan contains procedures for the recruitment and hiring of academic and classified staff, training for screening and selection committees, procedures related to applicant pools, and additional measures to support equal employment opportunities and an environment that is welcoming to all.
