Educational Master Plan

Educational Master Plan, February, 2003 (714Kb) PDF

The Educational Master Plan for College of the Desert (COD) is the result of a year-long effort with an emphasis on learners – students, college staff, and members of the Valley community. Enrollment at COD will at least double over the next two decades. There is a need to prepare students for further education, work, citizenship and community through learning-centered programs and services, and to provide access to quality education for the diverse residents, and promote civil, prosperous, and stimulating quality of life in the Valley. The expansion will have classrooms in various locations, additional staff to teach classes in new locations and internet classes for ease of use by students who cannot commute.

Facilites Master Plan

Facilities Master Plan, November, 2003 (35Kb) PDF

This Facilities Plan helps College of the Desert (COD) implement its Educational Master Plan, improving COD’s market penetration and instructional quality by:

  1. Renovating and expanding the Palm Desert Campus
  2. Acquiring and developing a new Eastern Valley Center
  3. Operating a Western Valley Center
  4. Expanding online instruction and use of other Coachella Valley sites - nearly doubling the college's enrollment by 2015

COD enrollments have continued their rise in Fall 2003 – despite course and support cutbacks largely because of the intense demand in the Coachella Valley.
