San Antonio College Academic Program Review. Revised 2001.
San Antonio Coll., TX.
San Antonio College, a college of the Alamo Community College District, develops a system of academic program review in order to ensure effective and efficient delivery of the instructional services provided at the institution. This document provides guidelines on completing a program review. Through the review, the college aims to produce the following results: (1) provide opportunity for the self-evaluation of the program by the faculty; (2) identify program needs and inform faculty and stage development; (3) establish a procedure for the systematic improvement of programs; (4) assist in curriculum and staff development; (5) ensure quality programs; and (6) suggest means of appropriately allocating the resources of the institution. The review is designed to situate the assessment and evaluation of programs from multiple perspectives. Therefore, it involves multiple levels of faculty and administrators in the process: the departmental committee, the departmental chair, the divisional dean, the college program review committee, the college program review committee, and the executive vice president. Each of these units participates in a different capacity in reviewing the program and developing a final review report. The program review report consists of two parts: the report proper and the supporting documentation. A template of the review report is provided in this document. (GC)
