Action Projects

Action Projects are goals or initiatives selected from JC’s Strategic Plan that provide evidence necessary for accreditation via AQIP’s categories. JC is required to provide annual updates on current action projects to AQIP. AQIP reviews each annual update.

Current Action Projects

Resource Planning

Project Start Date: September 2017

Project Goal:  To design a sustainable comprehensive resource-planning model that provides cross-functional input and a systematic approach to allocating resources including but not limited to multiyear planning, strategic resource alignment, capital improvement needs and sustainability.


Competency Based Education

Project Start Date: July 15, 2017

Project Goal: Spring/Fall 2017: Create CBE vision and project planning document (Kate with CBE workgroup members). Continue to break courses into competencies and determine assessments for each competency as part of the two CBE-based programs we will be offering first (see below).

Winter 2018: Complete HLC application to offer two CBE-based programs: (1) Allied Health General Studies Associate of Applied Science and (2) Health Administration/Insurance Specialist Associate of Applied Science. Pilot CBE-based courses in MFG.

Spring 2018: Pilot at least five additional CBE-based courses. Identify next round of CBE-based programs and begin prep.

Formal Assessment at end of Spring 2018 to review project plan and progress.

Fall 2018: All JC courses will be broken into their respective competencies and means of assessment will be identified for each competency (deliverable: CBE worksheet completed for each JC course). Pending status of HLC application and review, launch the two CBE-based Allied Health programs noted above.

2018-2019, ongoing: Based on student and faculty feedback, revise competencies and respective assessments as needed.


Redesigning the Strategic Planning Process

Project Start Date:  September 2017

The primary goals are to 1) design a sustainable strategic planning process that provides for a cross-functional, collaborative, systemic approach to documenting and implementing strategies, 2) provide a platform for HLC action project identification, 3) operationalize strategies into meaningful and achievable individual, department and division initiatives, 4) produce a collaborative approach to avoid the silo effect and to provide performance monitoring of Board reports and initiative/goal completion, 5) ensure that the strategic planning council and other campus councils and committees are aligned to the derived strategy.
