Each fall semester the Program Review Committee reviews needs requests from all college programs.  During this process, the departments provide documentation of their needs, including information regarding how fulfilling these needs will support programmatic planning and the institution's mission and strategic plan.

Support for Writing Needs Assessment Documents


Other Resources

CTE Labor Market Information (LMI): CTE programs must request LMI data from the Inland Empire/Desert Regional Consortium for Inland Empire and Desert Community Colleges. The request form can be accessed at this site: http://www.desertcolleges.org/lmi/index.php

SLO/SAO: Information on your program's SLOs or SAOs are found in the SLO Cloud. This is accessed through WebAdvisor or directly through the Faculty Resource page on the college website.

Program EMPs: All programs are required to update their Educational Master Plan (EMP) narrative each fall, based on annual data and new or emerging goals. Please use your current EMP in writing Needs Assessments. However, historical EMPs can be found on the College Planning Documents page maintained by the Office of Research, Planning and Institutional Effectiveness.

Research Requests: A link to the research request form can be found on the main webpage of the Office of Research, Planning and Institutional Effectiveness. Deadlines to submit requests for needs assessment or efficacy are generally noted at the time those documents are sent to programs by the committee.
