The Planning and Decision-Making Manual (PDM [Authenicated Login Required] ) has been developed to promote and sustain planning, participation, and effective decision-making at Irvine Valley College. The PDM describes how all members of the college and district community are involved in the strategic planning and decision-making processes by clearly delineating the roles and responsibilities of all constituent groups as defined by law, regulation, and district and college policies and procedures.

The PDM includes college policies/procedures, committee charge charts, and organizational charts designed to promote widespread participation in strategic planning and decision-making. The PDM clearly desimplementation of planning agendas and recommendations and takes a lead role in developing the annual report for submission cribes how the college functions and identifies its relationship with district planning and decision-making. The manual is intended to serve as a living document that is regularly updated to reflect continuous improvements in the strategic planning and decision-making at Irvine Valley College.

Planning also facilitates the development of the long-term strategic plans which require assessment, evaluation, and reflection of IVC. The plans are developed with extensive collaboration and input from IVC stakeholders across the campus and from all levels of the organization.
