Purpose and Goals


The information gathered during the program review process provides the basis for informed decision making in the Peralta Community College District. Comprehensive Instructional Program Review is a systematic process for the collection, analysis, and interpretation of data concerning a program or department and its curriculum. It provides program and/or departmental accountability by collecting, analyzing and disseminating information that will inform integrated planning, resource allocation, and decision-making processes.


The primary goals are to:

  • Ensure quality and excellence of academic programs.
  • Provide a standardized methodology for review of instructional areas.
  • Provide a mechanism for demonstrating continuous quality improvement, producing a foundation for action.
  • Identify effective and exemplary practices.
  • Strengthen planning and decision-making based upon current data.
  • Identify resource needs.
  • Develop recommendations and strategies concerning future directions and provide evidence supporting plans for the future, within the department, at the college and at the District level.
  • Inform integrated planning at all levels within the College and the District.
  • Ensure that educational programs reflect student needs, encourage student success, and improve teaching and learning.
