Student Learning and Program Effectiveness Committee

The Student Learning and Program Effectiveness Committee (SLAPEC) was created in Fall 2014 with the merger of the Program Review Committee and the Student Learning Outcomes (SLO) and Assessment Committee. Archived documents from the earlier committees are available at Program Review Committee and SLO and Assessment Committee.

Mission Statement

The goals of the West Valley College Student Learning and Program Effectiveness Committee are to:

  • Develop a streamlined process that integrates learning outcome assessments and program self-evaluation.
  • Encourage thoughtful and meaningful dialogue among faculty and staff on methods and practices that help students achieve their goals.
  • Assist faculty and staff in managing learning outcome assessment data and supporting evidence for continuous quality improvement in compliance with accreditation standards.
  • Support program self-evaluation and planning based on thoughtful student assessments, collaborative dialogue, and meaningful program review.
  • Act as the faculty and staff voice to ensure a transparent and systematic process that improves linkage and accountability between program review and resource allocation.
