INSTITUTIONAL EFFECTIVENESS: ACADEMIC PROGRAM VIABILITY REPORT
The Academic Program Viability Report (APVR) is designed to be an abbreviated yearly summative evaluation of a program’s viability. It provides key College stakeholders, a snapshot of relevant program-specific information in order to highlight program trends and issues. Program level action plans are included in the report as part of the program viability report process.
The APVR contains detailed measure descriptions as well as individual program reports for all lower and upper-division programs designated by the active academic organization levels. The ten required measures include unduplicated student count, SSH Enrollment, performance, percent full metric, number of program graduates, internships, industry certification, placement data, Perkins completion metrics, and employment trends.
The most recently completed Academic Program Viability Reports for each degree program may be viewed by selecting the respective tab below. A public site within the Educational Outcomes website provides the public access to view published reports.
