Integration of Program Review Process and Collegewide Planning
San Diego Miramar College has developed a Program Review process that is now directly tied to resource allocation and higher-level planning. Resource requests must be validated in Program Review, including links to associated student learning outcomes assessment and achievement data if applicable. These requests are then linked to the School/Service Area Program Reviews and Division Plans, which ultimately feed into the College’s Educational Master Plan. In addition, all Program/Service Area Goals, resource requests, and activities are now directly mapped to the College’s Strategic Plan Goals, which are themselves based on the College Mission Statement. As such, both short-range and long-range needs for programs and services are captured in Program Review and channeled through higher-level plans to improve institutional effectiveness and academic quality.
