PURPOSE AND GOALS

Academic Program Review is an integral part of the total process of curriculum planning, development and implementation at Grossmont College. The information gathered during the review process provides the basis for informed decision-making by the faculty and administration on the allocation of resources to those programs as well as the initiation, expansion, contraction, consolidation and termination of programs. The process not only provides program and department accountability but also provides an opportunity for innovative and effective practices to be shared with the campus community and to tie the work that each department does to the larger strategic goals of the college and to fulfilling the college mission.  The Academic Program Review Committee's goals include:

  • Develop and implement a cooperative, standardized and flexible methodology to facilitate continuous program review (reviewed and updated each cycle).
  • Collect and disseminate relevant information that will provide a basis for long-range curriculum planning and development.
  • Insure integrity and excellence of academic programs.

All academic departments/programs are reviewed once every six years as part of the program review cycle. During the year in which the program is reviewed, the department/program writes a self-study document including departmental recommendations. The Academic Program Review Committee reviews these documents, requests written follow-up as needed, and meets with the department to discuss their strengths and weaknesses. A summary of commendations and recommendations is prepared by the committee and presented to the department in a meeting with the College President.  A final report summarizing the work of the committee each academic year is distributed to the Academic Senate, Vice President of Academic Affairs, College President, and the Governing Board and made publicly available via the pages linked below.
