Program Review is a systematic and evidence-based process of self-study, evaluation, planning, and improvement of instructional, student services, learning support centers, and administrative programs. Program Review requires an institution to assess its own performance. Through careful review, programs will be able to identify strengths, weaknesses, and areas of growth, to assure the quality and achievement of the college's mission and priorities.

Program Review will be due every other year beginning in Fall 2016. Resource Requests, including requests for new faculty positions, can be submitted every Fall semester. The Academic Senate approved these changes in its Action Item October 27, 2015.

All program reviews and resource requests will be due Friday October 28 (the fourth Friday of October)  and must be submitted online. There will be no grace period for late submissions (late resource requests will not be honored).
