What is Program and Department Review?
Program and Department Review is an integral part of the total process of planning and budgeting at Coastline Community College (CCC). The evaluation and recommendation subsections from each program review provide the basis for informed decision making on programs, personnel, facilities, equipment, and budget.
The Program and Department Review process is an effective vehicle for accountability and provides an opportunity for employees of CCC to actively participate in the growth of their own programs, departments and the growth of the college as a whole. Institutional planning and budget considerations will be based on the recommendations and justifications provided by this process.
Program and Department Review has been outlined by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) as a mechanism to build awareness, develop strategies to increase proficiency and sustainability through continuous quality improvement.
