Chipola College Master Plan

The 2023-2024 Chipola College Master Plan is a component of the Chipola Model for Planning, Assessment, and Sustained Success (CoMPASS). The Master Plan addresses factors that affect college operations and responds to previous years’ institutional outcomes.

The Master Plan: (1) facilitates accomplishing the college mission, (2) supports Florida Department of Education goals, (3) addresses the Florida College System accountability measures, (4) addresses SACSCOC principles of accreditation, and (5) addresses college policies on institutional planning.  Strategies and resources to achieve college priority outcomes are identified in the annual strategic plans (CoMPASS plans) of educational programs, administrative support units, and educational support service units.
