The Chabot College Institutional Planning and Budget Council (IPBC) is charged with overseeing the strategic planning efforts of the college, including linking planning with budgetary decision-making through processes of review and policy/procedural recommendations.  The College Budget Committee, Facilities Planning Committee, Institutional Research and Grants Development, and the College Technology Committee all report to IPBC.

Membership on the IPBC includes the college President and the three Vice Presidents; three Deans and one other administrator-at-large; five faculty members from different divisions; the Institutional  Researcher; at least one faculty member from the College Budget Study Group; a representative of the Faculty Association; four members of the Classified Staff; and two members of the Associated Students.

Strategic Plan

The Strategic Plan for 2009-12 outlines the priorities of Chabot College for the next several years.  Chabot College initiated its strategic planning process through the Institutional Planning and Budget Council (IPBC) in Fall of 2001.  At that time, it was agreed that the strategic plan would be crafted, communicated and implemented through a highly participative process.  Over time, the process has grown, evolved and become more systemized so that planning is part of an annual cycle that integrates planning, program review, and other college shared governance processes.

The goal of the planning process is to establish a clear direction for the college as communicated by an action-oriented three-year strategic plan.  Accreditation planning agenda recommendations from the self-study report are also included in the plan.  The 2008-09 priorities identified objectives within six themes and provided a framework for the strategic plan. The plan outlines the overarching college goals of the college (Awareness & Access, Student Success, Community Partnerships, and Vision, Leadership & Innovation), details the strategies and objectives, describes the programs and initiatives the college is undertaking to reach those goals, and lists the indicators by which success will be measured. Achievement of the Strategic Plan goals and objectives will be evaluated annually by the IPBC through key performance indicators.  Information regarding the strategic plan and the activity of the Institutional Planning and Budget Council will be posted regularly on the college website.
