Program Review Committee
Program Review is at the heart of planning at San Jose City College. As a key component of the integrated planning and resource allocation model, Program Reviews provide systematic, data-driven information that allows the College to examine the overall effectiveness of the institution. The Program Review process is designed to provide academic, student, and administrative areas the opportunity for review and assessment in relation to the College’s mission, vision, values and performance indicators. Moreover, the purpose is to ensure appropriate resources are being allocated to facilitate ongoing improvement in meeting the evolving learning needs of our students and community.
