PALM BEACH COMMUNITY COLLEGE ONLINE EFFECTIVENESS
Palm Beach Community College's (PBCC) strategic planning process has played a major role in enhancing the college's ability to manage change and reach agreement on resources and actions that will lead to increased effectiveness. The development of the college's strategic plan happened at the same time as its self-study review by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). The one element that has no substitute when establishing the IE process is the total understanding, support, and commitment by the college's administration, staff, and faculty.
