Academic planning is a continuous process. The Academic Master Plan (AMP) is the core of the planning and assessment efforts at Big Bend Community College and is the college strategic plan. Empowered through the planning process, faculty, staff and community members join with the Board in a commitment to meet the educational needs of the college district by interpreting the college’s goals as contained in the Board’s Ends Statements.
Identifying student needs and framing them in terms of outcomes, setting priorities for the use of college resources to achieve the outcomes, and reporting on the results of these efforts to the campus, the district and the Board is the thrust of this cornerstone-planning document. Additionally, this process establishes procedures for dealing with new issues as they arise.
The Board’s Ends Statements reinforce the college mission and goals. This most recent Academic Master Plan is a product of continuous planning efforts dating back to 1993, including the Comprehensive Development Plan, BBCC Title III, and the 1997-2002, and 2003-2008 Academic Master Plans. The 2009-2014 edition of BBCC's Academic Master Plan was approved by the Board of Trustees January 13, 2009.
