Why Do Program Review?

The purpose of SWC’s program review process is to review, analyze, and assess the content, currency, direction, and quality of all programs and services in order to invest in the unit’s future.

The intent of the program review process is to promote student-centered educational and service excellence by engaging all college units in self-examination and self-improvement.  The review process is to be broad-based, accessible, and integrated into other college-wide processes, such as accreditation, budget, and planning.  The information gathered and analyzed in program review is an integral part of institutional planning, decision-making, personnel development, program improvement, and optimal utilization of the college’s budgetary resources.
