One of the essential pieces of data the College studies are the data from the Annual Program Review (APR) reports. In this Program Review section are links to the individual reports, summaries, and other documents related to a college wide view of the programs we offer.
- Fall 2012 APR Summary (trends and recommendations for improvement from the Program Review Committee)

Evaluating the Core Mission
Continued cuts in state funding have required the college to re-evaluate its core mission; to focus its mission. Bakersfield College can no longer be "all things to all people". In Fall 2012, a program viability task force of the Academic Senate was created to develop the criteria used to evaluate the programs we offer. In addition an anonymous survey instrument was developed by the administration to gather input from the entire campus on what should be the core student and administrative support services that we offer to support student success and to maintain quality programs and services.
