Southwestern engages in strategic planning as well as academic and operational planning. The planning processes allow the College to create a roadmap to guide the staff in their efforts to meet the core theme objectives and fulfill the Mission. The comprehensive planning process includes the institutional strategic plan (a compilation of academic and operational planning associated with the budget process), academic master plan, enrollment management plan, master facility plan, technology plan, sustainability plan, and the crisis management and disaster recovery planning. The plans are developed from input provided by faculty and staff during committee and taskforce meetings held throughout the year, as well as from a program review process that includes community and advisory committee meetings.

ITS Disaster Recovery Plan

The disaster recovery plan for Southwestern Oregon Community College, Integrated Technology Services Department provides information that guides College management and technical staff in the recovery of computing, network, and phone facilities operated by Integrated Technology Services in the event that a disaster destroys all or part of the facilities. The Recovery plan is composed of a number of sections that document resources and procedures to be used in the event that a disaster occurs at the Integrated Technology Services facility in Randolph Hall server room or phone and network switch room. Each supported computing platform has a section containing specific recovery procedures. There are also sections that document the personnel that will be needed to perform the recovery tasks and an organizational structure for the recovery process.

This page is in development.  Please check back again after October 20th.

Note:  Southwestern is in the process of developing a new Facilities Master Plan for 2019-2029.  The process is in the feedback stage with the goal to present the plan to the Board of Education in early 2020. Southwestern acknowledges the work of Opsis Architecture and Smith Group along with faculty, staff, Board of Education members and the community.

 

2008 Facilities Master Plan

The Master Plan is intended to serve as a guide and resource for the implementation of improvements and/or remodeling projects for the College’s facilities. A comprehensive study was conducted by Crow Clay & Associates, Inc. that was completed in May 2008 with the plan updated in the last several years to include current projects (projects are now mapped to core themes and objectives during the annual planning process). This Master Plan study was initiated through a series of meetings (called Focus Groups) with College constituents in each of the communities served by the College. The purpose of the Focus Groups was to ascertain community member thoughts and perceptions on existing College services and on additional services the College might provide.

The Integrated Technology Plan includes currently planned technology needs as well as replacement equipment for campus-wide technology use including a focus on the lab and classroom technology needs.
