PROGRAM REVIEW COMMITTEE (PRC)

Charge:

Program review is the process by which instructional and non-instructional programs systematically assess themselves to ensure currency, relevance, appropriateness, and achievement of stated goals and outcomes related to student learning and institutional effectiveness.

The Foothill College Program Review Committee (PRC) will be responsible for evaluating (comprehensive) program reviews. The PRC will also evaluate mandated remediation plans as they arise, to determine whether they represent a viable plan for improvement towards achieving program and college goals.

Role:

  • The Program Review Committee (PRC) will evaluate all regularly scheduled comprehensive program reviews. In addition, the PRC will assess all programs that have been identified for an out-of-cycle comprehensive review and any program remediation plans as described below. Using program review data, the PRC will categorize each program as Green, Yellow or Red. The PRC will present a summary of their evaluations and recommendations to PaRC.
  • PRC recommendations to PaRC will include:
    • Color categorization (Green, Yellow, or Red).
      • Green signifies the program is recommended to continue in the regular program review cycle.
      • Yellow signifies that trend analysis indicates the program is not meeting targets and/or indicators identified within the program review document, or that the program review document is incomplete.
      • Red signifies that trend analysis indicates a notable and persistent decline in viability, an abrupt change to one or more of the targets and/or indicators, or that a program previously categorized as Yellow has not successfully implemented its remediation plan.
    • Areas of commendation and/or concern.
    • Recommendations for follow-up by the program, to include:
      • Continuing or resuming the regularly scheduled 3-year comprehensive program review cycle.
      • An out-of-cycle comprehensive program review with remediation plan.
      • Annual program review with remediation plan.
    • The nature and timing of the remediation plan (if one is recommended), inlcuding:
      • When it is due (e.g. end of June in current year, or the next fall quarter, etc.).
      • Who will initially review the pan (e.g. submitted to the supervising administrator by the end of June with PRC reviewing an update in the fall, or plan submitted to PRC in the fall).
      • Whether the remediation plan should explicitly identify goals, benchmarks and timelines for improving areas of concern, or whether it should focus on a follow-up response to sections in need of clarification/rewriting.
  • Any program receiving a Yellow or Red will have the opportunity to respond to this rating at PaRC.
  • PaRC may accept some or all of the recommendations and/or request further information and clarification from the PRC. PaRC may then recommend program remediation, suspension or discontinuance to the President. The President will either accept PaRC's recommendation, or explain his/her reason for not accepting PaRC's recommendation.
  • Following the PaRC recommendations on next steps, the approved program review summary is sent to OPC for inclusion in their resource allocation process.

Membership:

The Program Review Committee will consist of nine to twelve members appointed through the Academic Senate, Classified Senate, and the President's Office (3 or 4 of each), and a student advisory member. Constituent groups are strongly encouraged to appoint members representative of all four Core Missions, as well as a wide range of college programs, inlcuding but not limited to: student services, cross divisional support services (e.g. the Library), and instruction. Senate presidents will confer with each other to ensure that membership is balanced and representative. "Expert" resources will be consulted as needed, such as the SLO Coordinator, CCC faculty co-chair, Articulation Officer, Director of Facilities, and Chief Financial Officer.
