About the Committee


In support of the College's Mission and Institutional Learning Outcomes, the Program Review Committee (PRC) facilitates a transparent and broad annual, systematic self-assessment of institutional effectiveness and budget planning for instructional, student services, administrative, and operational areas. PRC provides feedback and training related to the program review process. The committee contributes to "Closing of the Loop" by disseminating resource allocation requests to responsible committees and by improving our own processes. PRC advises on the inclusion of new programs into the Program Review process. The committee communicates out to the campus and the community. PRC reports monthly to Academic Senate and annually to College Council and Administrative Council at their last meetings of the calendar year.
