For over 90 years, the faculty and staff of the Yuba Community College District (YCCD) have continuously demonstrated a commitment to our students, their achievement, and academic success.

To support student learning and provide increased access, YCCD is dedicated to a process of systematic quality improvement. The Integrated Planning Model summarizes the long- and short-term planning that the District engages in to improve the quality of our programs and services.

YCCD Board Policy 3250 – Institutional Planning references this responsibility:

“The Chancellor shall ensure that the District has and implements a broad-based comprehensive, systematic and integrated system of planning that involves appropriate segments of the college community and is supported by institutional effectiveness research.” (BP 3250)

During the 2020-2021 academic year, the District engaged in the work of creating a new YCCD Strategic Plan.  The following planning priorities were articulated by the Chancellor and Board of Trustees and guided this work:

  • Community Oriented: Focused on our communities’ education, economic, civic/social, and health priorities;
  • Future Facing: Anticipating and shaping the future of education, the future of work, and the future of our communities; and will
  • Leverage Partnerships: Extend access to a broad array of educational programs through strategic partnerships

As we worked to define and articulate our vision for the future, we  engaged in conversations that explored questions that included:

  • Who are the college students of 2030? What are their needs?
  • What is the future of teaching and learning?
  • What does the higher education environment look like post Covid-19
  • How will our district fulfill our evolving mission?
  • How does YCCD transform the lives of our students and the futures of the communities we serve?

Our goal was to engage our communities in a planning process that was collaborative and future-facing.  We are striving to develop an organizational culture that is prepared for the future, and responsive and equitable in serving all students and our communities. Although our most recent Strategic Plan Development cycle is complete, we will continue to engage our internal and external communities to actively co-construct the future we want.
