Academic Program Review

The College, as part of the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) Open Pathways Accreditation Core Component 4.A.1, undertakes regular reviews of each academic program. The purpose of the Program Review is to evaluate the quality, productivity, and role of College programs in the fulfillment of the College’s Mission and Strategic Plan. The process encourages self-study and planning based upon program assessment results, addresses comparability among review reports, and strengthens linkages connecting the College’s strategic planning process with that of individual programs. Information developed during the review process is used in budgetary and planning decisions.
