Comprehensive Program Review (CPR) is an integral component of Skyline College’s planning
and resource allocation processes. A three - semester endeavor initiated in the spring
and due the following April, instructional and student/learning support services faculty/
staff reflect on their program’s efficacy to enhance the overall effectiveness of
the College. Using multiple methods and inquiry, faculty/staff reflect on and evaluate
their program for the purposes of strengthening student learning and program effectiveness.
This reflection leads to the identification of steps and resources necessary to work
towards the program vision. Resource requests such as personnel, instructional equipment,
and facilities are submitted through the separate though linked Annual Resource Request
Comprehensive Program Review is also a vehicle through which faculty and staff reflect
on and document progress on goals from the past five years that are documented in
the previous CPR and Annual Program Plans (APPs). With APPs being replaced by the
Program Review Updates (PRU) in Fall 2021, faculty and staff in future program review
cycles will refer back to the previous CPR and PRUs.
The CPR process is managed and supported by the Institutional Effectiveness Committee,
who also coach program faculty/ staff to evaluate their program’s effectiveness and
formulate appropriate plans moving forward. Partners to further support program faculty/
staff in this endeavor include the Office of Planning, Research, Innovation and Effectiveness
(PRIE), Curriculum Committee (CC), Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning
(CTTL), and Strategic Partnerships and Workforce Development (SPWD).
