Integrated Planning Framework

Welcome to the San Diego Miramar College Integrated Planning page. The college’s Mission and Vision Statement provide the overall framework and basis for integrated planning college wide. This connection is achieved by the development of Strategic Plan Goals that directly support the mission and are used to guide college wide planning over a 7-year period. Through the implementation of the Strategic Plan, the mission guides institutional decision-making, planning, and resource allocation. All instructional programs and service areas develop their goals in alignment with the Strategic Plan, thus ensuring that the college mission is central to planning at all levels of the College. Public access to all planning-related documents is available via the interactive Student Success Framework for Long-term Integrated Planning.
