Title: New Program Development


1
New Program Development
Zerryl Becker, College of the Desert Joe Darin,
California Community Colleges Chancellors
Office
2
Step 1 The Idea
  • Every new program starts with an idea.
  • Faculty Driven
  • Community Driven
  • Grant Driven
  • However it starts
  • You have to LOVE your idea
  • You have to SELL your idea

3
Valid Ideas
  • A program or course must be directed at the
    appropriate level for community colleges that
    is, it must not be directed at a level beyond the
    associate degree or the first two years of
    college.
  • A program or course must address a valid
    transfer, occupational, basic skills, civic
    education, or lifelong learning purpose.
  • It must not be primarily avocational or
    recreational.
  • Programs and courses should also be congruent
    with the mission statement and master plan of the
    college and district.

4
Step 2 Justification
  • This is perhaps the most difficult part of
    creating a new program.
  • You may know it is needed, but you have to
    convince with evidence your District, the
    regional consortium, the state, and of course
    your customers, the students.

5
Step 2 Justification
  • Appropriateness to mission
  • Need
  • Adequate Resources
  • Compliance.
  • No Harmful competition

6
Need
  • For both credit and noncredit career technical
    education (CTE) programs, or those that respond
    to economic development interests, need for the
    program must be documented by supplying current
    labor market information within the local service
    area of the individual college and/or a recent
    employer survey.
  • In addition, a current job market analysis, or
    other comparable information, must show that jobs
    are available for program completers within the
    local service area of the individual college
    and/or that job enhancement or promotion
    justifies the proposed curriculum.

7
Evidence of Need
  • Evidence of labor market need may be submitted in
    the form of
  • Statistical projections of growth in specific
    jobs by county (or labor market area) from the
  • Employment Development Departments Labor Market
    Information system
  • Recent employer surveys
  • Industry studies
  • Regional economic studies
  • Letters from employers
  • Minutes of industry advisory committee meetings
    (when offered in conjunction with other evidence)
  • Job advertisements for positions in the
    individual colleges service area
  • Newspaper or magazine articles on industry or
    employment trends
  • Studies or data from licensing agencies or
    professional associations

8
Adequate Resources
  • The college must demonstrate that it has the
    resources to realistically maintain the program
    or course at the level of quality described in
    the application.
  • This includes funding for faculty compensation,
    facilities and equipment and library or learning
    resources and the college must demonstrate that
    faculty are available to sustain the proposed
    required course(s) and to facilitate student
    success.
  • The college must have the resources needed to
    offer the course(s) at the level of quality
    described in the Course Outline(s) of Record
    (COR).
  • The college must commit to offering all of the
    required courses for the program at least once
    every two years, unless the goals and rationale
    for the particular program justify a longer time
    frame as being in the best interests of students.

9
Compliance
  • It is also required that the design of the
    program or the course is not in conflict with any
    law including state and federal laws, both
    statutes and regulations.
  • Laws that particularly affect community colleges,
    as well as any other laws that may affect the
    program or course, such as licensing laws in a
    particular occupation, need to be considered.

10
Finale
  • If you are going to develop a new program
  • Be sure you love it
  • Be sure you have the evidence to justify it
  • Be sure you have the support of your
    college/district planning staff
  • Be sure you read the PCAH manual
  • Get to know Joe

Top 11 Reasons that Delay Approval of Credit
Program Applications
  1.  Course Outlines for all required courses are not
    submitted. p.23-28, 62, 74

12
Top 11 Reasons that Delay Approval of Credit
Program Applications
  • 2. Local/Regional Labor Market Information is not
    included. National or state data is not
    sufficient. If local or regional data is not
    available, another form of data must be
    submitted, such as an employer survey or industry
    scan from the Centers of Excellence for emerging
    occupations. p. 56-61, 73-74
  • 3. Application for a Low-unit Certificate that
    has been previously offered does not include
    recent Enrollment and Completer Projections. If
    enrollment and completer data for two or more
    semesters are not available, then the certificate
    application must include all items required for a
    new credit program. p. 47-49, 56, 72

13
Top 11 Reasons that Delay Approval of Credit
Program Applications
  • 4. Advisory Committee roster does not list
    members with title and affiliation (e.g. business
    name). p. 61
  • 5. Catalog Description doesnt match the
    Statement of Program Goals and Objectives or no
    description is provided. p. 54-55, 69-71
  • 6. Required units provided in Planning Summary do
    not match the Program Requirements listed in the
    narrative. p. 52-53, 55-56, 69, 72

14
Top 11 Reasons that Delay Approval of Credit
Program Applications
  • 7. Place of Program in Curriculum does not
    discuss other awards offered at the applicant
    community college in the same or related
    disciplines. For career technical education
    programs, this item should discuss the proposed
    programs place in the career pathway to
    employment. p. 57, 72

15
Top 11 Reasons that Delay Approval of Credit
Program Applications
  • 8. Associate degree program requirements do not
    include general education pattern(s) with units,
    other graduation requirements and/or electives
    required to reach the minimum of 60 semester or
    90 quarter units. p. 10-12, 55-56, 71
  • 9. Required Signatures (original) are missing or
    Board Approval Date is not provided. p.
    65-66,75-76

16
Top 11 Reasons that Delay Approval of Credit
Program Applications
  • 10. Course Outlines are not Title 5 compliant.
    Typical omissions are the total number of hours
    for the course and examples of assignments. p.
    26-28
  • Transfer documentation is not sufficient.
    Programs with transfer designation should show
    that the program substantially satisfies the
    lower-division coursework requirements of the
    corresponding university major. p.36-37, 62
  • Page numbers refer to Program and Course
    Approval Handbook, 3rd Edition (March 2009)
    available for download from http//www.cccco.edu.
    Please refer to the Tips for Successful
    Submission of Requests on p. 41 of the handbook.

Standards of Quality for All Courses Credit and
Noncredit
  • All courses must be approved by local curriculum
    committee composed of faculty and others as
    agreed upon by the academic senate and the
    administration. (55002).

    governing board. (55002).
  • The institution assures the quality and
    improvement of all instructional courses and
    programs offered in the name of the institution.

18
55002. Course Outline of Record
  • Serves as a contract between college and student
    on what students are expected to gain by taking
    the course.
  • Serves as a contract between college/district and
    System Office on what the college is expected to
    teach and on how students are expected to
    benefit.
