Planning, Review, and Budget Council Program Review Synthesis Statement to Faculty Prioritization Committee November 24, 2014 The PRBC recommends that the college consider a radical new direction from its historical pattern. Traditionally, we obtain our FTES goal, translate that to FTEF, and put it on schedule, adding new faculty based on retirements and need. From reading and synthesizing over fifty Program Reviews, we see a critical need for classified and administrative personnel to support our existing and projected FTES goals. Critical gaps in infrastructure prevent us from maintaining programs and meeting student needs. On the Academic side, there are programs that are on the brink of not being able to support students in achieving their educational goals, and they need faculty. Disciplines anchored by one or no fulltime faculty are likely to be in the “worst” position, and those disciplines are a priority, given FTES. Similarly, Math appears to be a major completion gap, which would necessitate multiple faculty hires. Counseling, given retirements and increased load from SSSP, is a need as well.
