College Program Review is a comprehensive, systematic method of self-evaluation and review of achievement of departmental/program purposes and goals. It is the means by which all instructional programs periodically review themselves according to a set of established criteria. The program review process complements on-going annual institutional effectiveness and is a vital part of the Atlanta Technical College strategic planning effort.
All academic departments and programs within the College undertake a program review every three years, following a schedule published in the College Program Review Rationale and Calendar. Each department/program performs an in-depth self-study which is reviewed by their Dean prior to submission to the College Program Review Committee, in accordance with the timeline included in the Rationale and Calendar. Following the completion of all steps of the process, the report is submitted to the Executive Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs who performs a final review, provides feedback to each academic department, and uses it to take administrative action and/or in the budget process to allocate financial resources that may have been identified for use in the next fiscal year.
