All planning on the campus flows from the program of instruction and student support systems. Understand the curriculum, the disciplines & programs that comprise it, and ensure these needs are met -- the rest of campus planning will follow.
A collaborative plan is a usable plan. The proof and worthiness of a plan is whether or not it is used. A usable plan has been built with and has the support of the college constituency base.
Integrated planning is successful planning. For every action there are secondary reactions. The changes that are created within the structure and culture of the institution as a result of the planning process need to be taken into consideration and carefully integrated in the existing fabric of the campus. All plans must be integrated into a unified whole supporting the District's and Colleges' vision, mission, and goals
