Resource Allocation Council

Guiding Principles

The Resource Allocation Council is committed to clearly communicating our processes and recommendations.  In the resource allocation process, we will ask the questions:

  • Does it help students reach their educational goals?
  • Is it reasonable?
  • Is it allowable?
  • Is it essential?
  • Is it sustainable?

The direction of the Resource Allocation Council is based on the following established Guiding Principles: 

  • We value stewardship and integrity in recognizing our fiduciary responsibilities to ensure financial stability.
  • We take an institutional approach to decision-making.  Resource allocation recommendations are based on the following:
  1. Alignment to the college mission and goals
  2. Scholarship of teaching and learning
  3. Value to the community
  4. Budget assumptions, projections, and  scenarios
  • We strategically allocate resources to strengthen learning and support services that improve student success.
  • We are responsive to articulated college needs through a defined and documented process.
  • We use relevant, well-defined, agreed-upon data in a consistent manner for decision-making.
  • We are proactive in leveraging current resources, regardless of the fiscal climate.
  • We operate under the established timelines.
  • We regularly assess, refine, and communicate resource allocation processes.
