Program Review

Spring 2015 Update 
Program Review is due by March 30, 2015.  All program review documents should be submitted online.

Please go to the Program Review Forms page for current directions and forms, as well as the link to the new online submission format, "Online Program Review Submission."  In the left sidebar, find the appropriate tab to take you to data for Instruction, Learning Support Centers, or Student Services. However, note that links to all this data are available within the new online submission format.

When you log on to the online form, last year's PR content will automatically fill the fields, so you can revise and update that text.  You can also prepare the PR in a format like Word, and copy and paste into the appropriate fields in the online form.

Please note that there are a couple of new questions in the SLO section related to GE and Program SLOs.

Save your work often, and do not hit the "Submit for IPC Review" button until you are sure you are completely finished.

If you are requesting materials, equipment, staff or faculty positions, you are strongly urged to share a draft of your PR with your Dean, prior to final submission.

Program Review Revision, 2012-2014
The revision process began in Spring 2012. Academic Senate Governing Council called an ad hoc committee, the Program Review Revision Group, and charged it with reviewing and revising program review documents and processes. The PR Revision Group membership consists of the Academic Senate President, Academic Senate committee chairs, appointees, and the Dean of the Office of Planning, Research, and Institutional Effectiveness (PRIE). 

The members are James Carranza (Academic Senate President), Laura Demsetz (Faculty Co-Chair, Accreditation), Cheryl Gregory (appointee, Learning Support Centers), Teeka James (appointee, AFT President), David Locke (Chair, College Assessment Committee), Teresa Morris (Chair, Committee on Instruction), Eileen O’Brien (appointee, Student Services), and John Sewart (Dean, PRIE).

Program Review Revision Group
In addition to scheduled meetings, members of the Program Review Revision Group met in numerous "work" sessions, regularly consulted with faculty, administrators, and classified staff in Instruction (including Career/Technical Education), Learning Support Centers, and Student Services. Members regularly visited division meetings, Instructional Administrators Council, and Student Services Administrators Council, and they shared progress and solicited feedback regularly at Governing Council and Institutional Planning Committee meetings.
