Program Review

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​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.

The Program Review Committee reports directly to the SJCC Academic Senate.


The PRvC is charged with the following:

  • Evaluate and provide feedback on the quality of program review documents submitted by the reviewing units.
  • Validate completed program review document and forward the document to the Planning and Institutional Effectiveness Committee​​​, Academic Senate and Finance Committee​.
  • Monitor integration of program review process with strategic planning.
  • Provide guidance to the College in the use of program review materials and the process of program review.
  • Annually evaluate the effectiveness of the program review process and policies and procedures related to program review, and recommend improvements and revisions as needed.
  • Report to the College Advisory Council and the Academic Senate annually regarding Committee findings and activities.

Program Review Cycle

As a key component to SJCC’s Integrated Planning Process, all instructional, student, and administrative areas are required to go through the Program Review cycle.  This cycle consists of three years of Annual Program Reviews followed by a Comprehensive Program Review in the fourth year.​​
