College of Marin Educational Master Plan 2019-2025

The Educational Master Plan (EMP) 2019—2025 is the collective vision for the College of Marin (COM) for the next six years. It flows from COM’s mission and is the principal document guiding all other institutional planning and decision-making, including strategic planning, resource allocation, evaluation, and outcomes assessment. 

The Educational Master Plan 2019—2025 builds on the substantial progress made in the ten-year Educational Master Plan 2009-2019. During the last 10 years, changes at COM and in the global environment occurred so rapidly that a six-year educational master plan was developed to better accommodate the pace of change.  Much has been accomplished in expanding K-12, workforce and other community partnerships, increasing dual enrollment of high school students, enhancing support for new students and furthering their progress once enrolled, and improving facilities, finances, philanthropic support, and planning and use of data for decisions.

The Educational Master Plan 2019—2025 was developed with broad internal and external input, analysis, and discussion. The six focus areas of the EMP include student access and success, equity, instructional programs, Indian Valley Campus, community engagement and responsiveness, and college systems.

Embedded within the Educational Master Plan 2019—2025 is the Strategic Plan 2019—2022, the first of two three-year strategic plans, which describes the objectives and action steps the College will take toward achieving the six-year educational master plan goals.

College of Marin Integrated Planning Manual

The College of Marin Integrated Planning Manual was developed to guide integrated, institutional planning at the College. The manual describes the ways that the College's constituent groups participate in and contributes to College planning. Revisions to the document are a result of the ongoing assessment of timelines and specific functions associated with the College's planning and resource allocation process made by the Planning and Resource Allocation Committee (PRAC).

The document contains a description of the integrated planning model and its key planning documents. It then outlines specific tasks to be accomplished, processes by which decisions/recommendations will be developed, timelines for each task, individuals or groups responsible for completing the tasks and individuals or groups that will receive the recommendations and render final decisions.
