Planning and PVCC
Planning at PVCC is guided by the College's mission. The planning process is coordinated by the Office of Institutional Research, Planning and Institutional Effectiveness. Leadership for planning is provided by the college's Planning and Budgeting Committee which oversees development and periodic review of the Strategic Plan and ensures a linkage between strategic planning and budgeting by recommending annual funding levels for strategic priorities.
The 2011 PVCC Strategic Plan addresses four institutional priorities:  Student Completion and Success,  Access to Education,  Excellence in Instruction and Student Support and  Resources to Support Teaching and Learning.
Strategic Initiative Proposals and Priorities
Want to start a new initiative? Serve our students in a different way? Equip your classroom, center, lab or studio? Develop your staff? Pilot a program? Add faculty or staff positions in your department? Submit a strategic initiative proposal!
Instructions and proposal forms are sent to the PVCC community each January. Proposals are reviewed by the Planning and Budgeting Committee and recommendations for funding priority are sent to the President by mid-April. In July, proposal authors receive information about the funding status of their proposals.
Annual unit plans reflect the shorter-term work at the department/division level necessary to achieve institutional goals. All PVCC Annual Unit Plans must be completed in WEAVEonline by July 1 for administrative and services units, and by the end of Fall Convocation Week for academic programs. For assistance, please contact Bruce Carveth.
PVCC also utilizes a Working Calendar for managing important annual administrative tasks.
