About the Committee

Charge

In support of the College's mission, the Program Review Committee (PRC) facilitates an annual, systematic self-assessment of institutional effectiveness and future planning for instructional, student services, administrative, and operational areas. PRC provides training, feedback, commendations, and recommendations 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. The committee reports monthly to Academic Senate and annually to College Council and Administrative Council at their last meetings of the calendar year.
