  • Aid in short-range planning and decision-making
  • Improve performance, services, and programs
  •  Contribute to long-range planning
  • Contribute information and recommendations to other college processes, as appropriate
  • Serve as the campus conduit for decision-making by forwarding information to appropriate committees
