Departmental Planning

Department Plan Template: This plan should include information about the department, goals/objectives tied to the institutional strategic plan, and student learning outcomes information. Once a department creates its department plan, they are to revisit it at a minimum of annually and update it as needed.  Their review should be done at key points of the college life cycle such as an updated self-study (Middle States and program accreditation) as well as when the college updates its strategic plan. We suggest you review this document in the early fall of each academic year to ensure your designated SLO's are reviewed and appropriate goals/objectives information is updated.  

This year's plans are due from the chair by September 15, 2021.

Academic Five Year Program Review Template 2021-22: The typical cycle for academic program review is every 5 years. Academic Departments that are participating in program review should send program review reports to the EPC chair by September 30th of the academic year of their review. The report will be reviewed by a subcommittee of EPC.  This feedback will be provided to the department chair for their review during the academic year.  Once the review is completed the report is shared with the appropriate Academic Dean and the SVPAA for follow-up and planning.
