2011 Annual Report Program Review. Report 11-07
Jones, Jessika
California Postsecondary Education Commission
The California Postsecondary Education Commission is directed by state law to review and comment on new academic program proposals from the University of California (UC), the California State University (CSU) and the community colleges. Program review is one of the CPEC's primary responsibilities--it coordinates the systems' long-range plans, monitors efficient use of state resources, and avoids unnecessary program duplication. This annual report includes a list of programs reviewed by CPEC staff, a summary of agreements made by the Program Review Advisory Committee, and the systems' long-range plans for new programs. It also discusses general trends in new programs and how they address workforce needs. This report provides, in a single source, a summary of the long-range academic and vocational program plans of all three public systems. This information can be used to assess the extent to which plans respond to emerging workforce and societal needs. The operational and capital costs for new programs may be assessed through cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness analyses. Also, workforce and societal needs can be prioritized and compared to plans for new programs to help ensure the effective use of state funding.
