Strategic Planning

For nearly 100 years, thousands of students and families in the Inland Empire have counted on the San Bernardino Community College District for higher education, career training, and the opportunity to get ahead. We have changed the trajectory of students' lives, strengthened our communities, enriched our local economy…and we're just getting started. Thanks to the valuable input of faculty, staff, students, alumni, K-12 schools, four-year universities, industry and community partners, this plan embodies our shared aspirations.

Plan Implementation

The final step in the integrated strategic plan process is for the Colleges to finalize their Educational Master Plans (EMP) and to begin the DSO Support Plan Project. Using the SBCCD Strategic Plan as a guide for the creation of College Strategic Directions and Supporting Actions will create alignment across the District.

Educational Master Planning Project

SBCCD is in the process of developing its next five-year District Strategic Plan, and Educational Master Plans (EMPs) at its two colleges: Crafton Hills College (CHC) and San Bernardino Valley College (SBVC). The Collaborative Brain Trust (CBT), a national firm serving higher education institutions, has been engaged to facilitate and provide educational master planning services to support the work of the colleges. The CBT team is working with the District and each college’s EMP Committee (EMPC) in the process. Each college’s EMPC represents all areas of the College, and the committee make-up represents all constituent groups across the college.

DSO Support Plan Project 

Beginning in January, 2023, the DSO began its process of developing the DSO Plan, incorporating Strategic Directions with Supporting Actions to operationalize its dual responsibility of supporting both the SBCCD Strategic Plan and the College EMPs. This project is designed to fulfill that objective.

The DSO planning Project has four key components:
     1. Develop the five-year DSO Plan Strategic Directions and Supporting Actions
     2. Align and refine the SBCCD Integrated Planning Model components
     3. Confirm and revise the SBCCD Delineation of Functions Map
     4. Continue building collaboration, respect, and a positive culture among DSO, SBVC, andn CHC colleagues

The five-month Project timeline extends from January to June 2023, with consideration for
adoption by the Board of Trustees in June 2023.
