Non-instructional PRP Form

2023-24 PRP Training Sessions (Zoom)

Non-instructional Program Review training sessions will be held on February 7, 2024. Trainings will review the PRP form and resource requests. Register for the session in the PD Portal: Program Review and Planning (PRP): Non-Instructional. Videos of the scheduled trainings will be posted below.



The College 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 of instructional and non-instructional programs  is based on analyses of both quantitative and qualitative data. The PRP process was used to prioritize funding for approved requests, which can be accessed in the link below.

Resource Allocations by Year




Non-instructional programs participate in a three-year cycle of Program Review and Planning. In year one, programs will complete a comprehensive plan/review. In years two and three, programs will provide annual updates to the comprehensive review, which include progress reports to the plan. The Program Review and Planning process begins in the spring semester.

The best Program Review and Planning documents are created through a collaborative effort! We ask that units engage their staff in completing their reviews.

To complete the program review process:

  • Program/unit leads will be notified that the Non-instructional PRP form link is available in the Program Review and Planning webpage. Determine which type of review you will  complete by consulting the Comprehensive/Annual PRP List before starting your form.
  • Once the form is complete and submitted, the form will be shared with Directors, Deans, and VPs for review and feedback.
  • Programs/units will then provide edits to the PRP, as appropriate.

Warning: Forms do not save automatically. Be sure to save the form often. Forms do not allow for simultaneous work from different computers. Coordinate with your colleagues to be sure no more than one computer has the form open at the same time, otherwise, entries to the form will be overridden.
