In Spring 2009, the campus evaluated and modified its planning processes and participatory governance structure to streamline processes and enhance links between committees involved in planning and decision making. The College continues to evaluate its annual and comprehensive program review process while implementing an infrastructure to support the process. The LAVC planning structure is integrated in the particpatory governance structure. In addition to other committee responsibilities, each Tier 2 planning committee is responsible for reviewing trends in program review modules for the purposes of institutional planning.
The program review is based on a streamlined process, using modules as the component of the program review and planning process. Departments and programs evaluate their effectiveness, identify needs, and set goals during the program review process. The program review modules are then distributed to the review committees and senior staff for resource allocation, institutional planning and other decision-making efforts.
