District-Wide Planning

South Orange County Community College District engages in extensive planning efforts to meet short term and long term goals. Here are a few guiding documents.

District-Wide Strategic Plan 2014-2020

The SOCCCD District-wide Plan 2014-2020 fully integrates with the Saddleback College and Irvine Valley College Strategic Plans.  The plan is managed by the District-wide Planning Council, a participatory governance group.

Strategic Planning Goals for 2014-2020

Goal 1: SOCCCD will foster an environment characterized by creativity, innovation, respectful interactions and collaboration.
Goal 2: SOCCCD will promote students' success by enhancing the teaching and learning environment.
Goal 3: SOCCCD will advance economic and workforce development through regional partnerships with educational institutions and industry and by strengthening career technical education.
Goal 4: SOCCCD will strengthen long-term financial health and institutional effectiveness through integrated planning and resource allocation.

Planning and Decision Making

The SOCCCD District-wide Planning and Decision Making Manual 2015-2020 describes how decisions get made, links budget allocation to planning (see District-wide Integrated Budget Planning Resources Guide), and explains the role of district-wide committees in decision making.  The SOCCCD District-wide Function Map was developed to promote and sustain planning and effective decision making throughout the district. The map is intended to illustrate how the two colleges and the district services’ offices manage the distribution of responsibility.
