Program Review and Planning for 2012-2013
In compliance with Standard I,B.3 of ACCJC/WASC, (The institution assesses progress toward achieving stated goals and makes decisions regarding the improvement of institutional effectiveness in an on-going and systematic cycle of evaluation, integrated planning, resource allocation, implementation, and re-evaluation. Evaluation is based on analyses of both quantitative and qualitative data.) Palomar College has developed a two-year, integrated planning and evaluation cycle. Each department, program and discipline is required to participate in the process each year.
The following instructions should be helpful as you complete the process: Click here to review helpful guidelines for completing the PRPs
1. Choose the appropriate form:
There are three forms available for Year 1 (Department, Discipline, and Instructional Support and Other Units). If you are in a multidiscipline department, you may be required to participate in the planning for your discipline and for your department.
Example 1: Faculty who teach in Architecture will complete the Discipline form and will collaborate with their colleagues from Drafting, Food & Nutrition, Fashion, Interior Design and Upholstery to complete the Department form.
Example 2: Faculty and staff in Instructional Support functions will only complete one form. Please see examples of such departments and programs on the Instructional Support and Other Units page.
2. Follow the steps as outlined on each form. The forms include links to the Strategic Plan and to sample responses.
Navigate to your division or instructional support unit below to access a preprinted PRP form. If you have any questions, or do not find your form, please call Institutional Research and Planning at extension 2360.
