The Program Review Committee conducts an annual campus-wide survey of resources requested as part of the All Services and Programs Institutional Resources & Engagement (ASPIRE) process. The Resource Request component of the ASPIRE process focuses on growth items in the areas of budget, equipment, facilities, technology, classified professionals, and faculty. The Program Review Committee gathers requests campus-wide and scores requests based on an established rubric. After discussing and ranking all requests according to score, the list of recommended prioritized requests is shared with College Council and the President’s Cabinet, who ultimately decide which requests to fund.

Resource Request Process 

Please note that we are revising our resource requests process as campus procedures and structures change, so this represents our process for Fall 2023/Spring 2024 Resource Requests.

The Program Review Committee uses a Resource Request Prioritization Rubric to create a prioritized request list to recommend to college funding decision makers.

  • Facilities & Technology Requests should be reviewed by the Facilities & Safety Committee or Technology Committee prior to submission to Program Review.

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:

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 Division of Research, Planning, and Institutional Effectiveness.

Research Requests: A link to the research request form can be found on the main webpage of the Division of Research, Planning, and Institutional Effectiveness.
