About Program Review Committee

Charge/Function:

The Program Review Committee is charged with fulfilling the institution’s commitment to college-wide dialog on program review and other data for the purposes of recommending improvements to the College Council on student services, instructional programs and administrative support services as well as the processes for governance and identifying institutional improvement needs. It will disseminate information on its findings to the college community. To ensure that institutional integrity is maintained, the Program Review Committee will:

  • Be a forum for dialog and recommendations on program review, college plans, student learning and achievement, support services and other data that promotes student success and institutional improvement;
  • Develop a knowledge base about all aspects of the DVC Pleasant Hill and San Ramon campuses—instruction, student services, administrative support—to make informed decisions about prioritizing resources;
  • Request and share information from and with campus wide committees;
  • Complete the linkage of program review reports, annual reports and college-wide plans by prioritizing the requests and allocating designated funds as identified by the Budget Committee’s annual plan;
  • Make recommendations to the Budget Committee, as part of the development of the Budget Committee’s annual plan, on priorities for use of fiscal resources based upon the evaluation of college program reviews and college-wide plans;
  • Maintain the recommended membership that provides for the broad representation of campus expertise.
