• As the Program Review process continues to mature, the next phase will be the use of the National Benchmarking Institute’s cost and productivity data to provide external targets. Programs will also be mentored in the use of statewide data for discipline comparisons. In addition, the College has invested in a data warehouse that will make the process of Program Review less manually driven and give departments the opportunity to delve deeper into the data for analysis (4.B.3).
  • Although budgeting is now a central component within the Program Review, another area for improvement is working with the budget office to provide a greater level of detail and less manually driven processes for the academic units. This is another area where the full implementation of the data warehouse will provide stronger, more integrated processes.
