Committee Charge

The charge of the Planning and Program Review (PPR) Committee is to advance continual, sustainable quality improvement at all levels of the institution.  Toward that end, the committee conducts a thorough and comprehensive review of each unit at the college on a cyclical basis and oversees the annual college-wide planning process.  The results of planning and program review inform the integrated planning and resource allocation process at the college, and are aligned with the district strategic planning process. The committee relies on quantitative and qualitative evidence to evaluate programs, develop recommendations to the President, and determine and implement improvements to the PPR process.
