Program Review APRU & CPR

All of the instructional programs and non-instructional units at Kauai Community College undergo program review as a commitment to continual improvement that ensures quality and excellence in education. The process is two-fold, the Annual Program Review Update (APRU) and the cumulative program review which takes place every 5 years. Continual tracking and analyses of enrollment, workforce needs, transfer rates, student learning outcomes, and other measurements keep programs and units in alignment with our mission and goals. A more detailed explanation of the review process and the University of Hawaii policies that support it are located in the University of Hawaii Community College Policy 5.202 or Kauai Community College Policy 1-6. Contact your division or unit chair for more information and/or refer to the resources below.

Annual Program Review Update (APRU)

The annual program review update for established programs and services will include an update on the progress made on action plans (from the full program review), a review and analysis of program health indicators and a resource and allocations priorities list. The general format for the annual program review update for instructional programs is located in UHCCP #5.202 Attachment 1-A or on the UHCC Annual Report of Program Data (ARPD) website. The general format for the annual program review update for non-instructional programs and services will be the same as that of the comprehensive program review or can be found on the ARPD website (Excerpt from KCCP 1-6).
