Strategic Planning and Allocation of Resources Committee (SPARC)
In an effort to strengthen the integration of planning and resource allocation the Strategic Planning and Allocation of Resources Committee (SPARC) was formed through the combination of the long-standing College Budget Committee (CBC) and Integrated Planning Council (IPC). The proposal to combine the two groups was developed during the Fall 2013 semester, and was formally recommended by both committees and approved by the College Governance Council in Spring 2014. The SPARC includes membership from both the CBC and IPC, and is guided by a Tri-Chair structure made up of the Academic Senate President, Vice President of Administrative Services, and Dean of Planning, Research, and Institutional Effectiveness (PRIE).
The Skyline College Strategic Planning and Allocation of Resources Committee (SPARC) will coordinate, integrate and communicate college-wide planning and budgeting. This committee will make integrated planning and budget recommendations to the College Governance Council (CGC).
