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.

NEW: NEXT SUBMISSION CYCLE IS FALL 2016

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.

During Fall 2015 and Spring 2016, a Program Review Task Force will address:

  • Establishing a firm fall due date for program review
  • Clarifying the Deans’ roles in the program review and resource request submission process
  • Further streamlining the program review and resource request forms
