• Inclusivity. The planning process will engage all members of the Community Colleges of Spokane, affording all the opportunity to provide input and feel vested in the outcome.

  • Transparency (communication). Sharing information and timely updates in addition to providing opportunities to engage directly in the process.

  • Taking a broad (versus local, parochial) view. Determining goals and setting priorities based on what’s deemed best for CCS as a whole rather than what’s best for oneself, an individual program, an individual department, or an individual division.

  • Consensus decision making. Not every decision will be 100% supported by 100% of participants at the table.

  • Respect. Respect for shared governance, for differing viewpoints, for the process, and for confidentiality.
