Program Review


Program Review is at the heart of integrated 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 (PRvC) reports directly to the SJCC Academic Senate.


The Program Review Committee PRvC is charged with the following:

  • Facilitate the integrated strategic planning by developing a timeline and streamlining the program review process.  
  • Provide guidance and support to the College in the use of program review materials and the process of program reviews. 

  • Annually evaluate the effectiveness of the program review process as well as policies and procedures related to program review, recommend and execute improvements and revisions as appropriate and as needed.  

  • Annually report to the College Advisory Council and the Academic Senate 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 Comprehensive Program Review cycle.  This cycle constitutes four years and is marked by Annual Program Reviews and a larger Comprehensive Program Review in the fourth year.
