Program Review is a process that provides the opportunity for employees at COS to assess and improve student learning and support programs and services. Additionally, it allows the college to determine the impact of its efforts at all levels of the institution on the College's Mission, Vision, and Institutional Goals. Participating in Program Review promotes dialog around assessment and continuous improvement. It supports the College's efforts to evaluate educational quality and effectiveness of programs and services, and it provides necessary information that informs planning, budgeting, and institutional decision-making. Through broad participation and dialog within and between the levels of institutional decision-making, Program Review encourages faculty, staff, and administrators to adjust to changing needs, emerging technologies, best practices, and other advances.
