Program/Discipline Review Process

Library Asst student shelving books
PCC is implementing a new annual Program Review process. In 2019/2020 five disciplines and programs piloted this new process and in 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 additional subsets of programs and disciplines (those that would have needed to complete their 5-year program review in the previous model) also participated. And in 2022/23 a final subset of programs and disciplines will participate in the annual process for the first time, so that all programs and disciplines will be completing an Annual Update that year. This new annual report model focuses on key elements of data evaluation, student learning assessment, goal setting, and resource planning. It will help us to better assess and address program/discipline needs, while also having a more frequent and focused assessment of the status of our programs and disciplines. These reports are referred to as “Program Review – Annual Program Update” (for CTE programs) and as “Program Review – Annual Discipline Update” (for LDC disciplines). They are often referred to as APU/ADU  or Annual Update for short.

The current plan is for Programs/Disciplines to alternate an “A” year report on analysis of student success data, with a “B” year report focused on goals and resource needs. The “B” year is timed to support budgeting for the subsequent biennium. Given the timing of the rollout for 2020/2021, both A&B portions were submitted that year for the 24 Programs/Disciplines that started the process. For 2021/2022, only part A was completed by all participating Programs and Disciplines.

The most recent five-year reviews continue to be housed here, and many older reviews are available at the archive. All reviews, whether on the five year model or the new annual process, were conducted by the faculty of each Subject Area Committee as the experts in the field to promote self-evaluation and discovery and to identify future goals that would, ultimately, improve instruction.
