Presentation CIPR — CNM
The (CIPR) process provides a unique opportunity for continuous improvement while achieving our vision and mission. The goal of the CIPR process is to ensure that all CNM programs, credit and non-credit, lead to successful completion, transfer, and/or positive employment outcomes. Additionally, regularly evaluating our programs with the CIPR process ensures that our academic offerings match both employer/industry needs, as well as student demand.
The program review process is an effective vehicle for accountability and provides the NJC with the opportunity to:
- think critically about our work
- actively participate in the evaluation and continuous improvement of our programs
- engage in dialogue about a program’s strengths, challenges, opportunities and aspirations
- guide strategic decisions that impact the financial health, stability and vibrancy of our institution
Program review is an integral part of the planning and budgeting process at CNM. The results of each curriculum review provide the basis for informed decision-making about the effectiveness and efficiency of programs and services, staff, facilities, equipment, and budget for the future of the program under review. In addition, the results of the program review inform and support the College’s strategic and operational plans.
