The review of academic programs is intended to improve the overall quality of existing instructional programs offered to Southwestern College students through the Academic Affairs sector.
Its purpose is to assist the faculty in conducting a self-study of their programs to assure that the educational programs are responsive to the needs of our students, as stated in the college's mission statement, and the district's diverse community.
