Formed by the Faculty Senate in fall 2010, the Program Review Committee promotes and supports the systematic self assessment of instructional programs, student support services, and administrative/operational areas throughout the college.

To that end, the Program Review Committee designs self-study documents, reads and evaluates the self-studies and provides feedback to writers. A key purpose for the committee is to identify common themes found across the various program reviews. The college themes identified by the committee are presented to Faculty Senate for ratification, forwarded to the President’s Advisory Council (PAC) for endorsement and used to inform the campus process of developing college goals.

The Program Review Committee provides both the identified themes as well as a complete list of requested resources.


As part of a continuous quality improvement process, the committee engages in ongoing review and revision of templates and processes associated with Program Review. Members shall serve staggered terms (when feasible) with one half the committee elected / appointed /selected new for each program review cycle.

As part of the three year cycle, the Program Review Committee provides a report to the Faculty Senate for both instructional and non-instructional for approval and subsequent communication of the report to the President’s Advisory Council.
