​​​​​​​​​Overview: Annual Program Review/Unit Planning Process

  • The APR/Unit Planning Process for 2016-17 is now open; closes January 31, 2017
  • The APR/Unit Planning Process for 2015-16 is closed

Harbor's online, assessement-based unit planning process uses the Strategic Educational Master Plan 2014-17 (SEMP) as the basis of data analysis and unit planning. The unit planning process is college-wide and includes all instructional programs and operational units. The results of the Fall 2015 Pilot, summarized in the Unit Planning Retreat, were used to finalize the design of the process for college-wide application in Spring 2016. All units are currently engaged in the Unit Planning process. Results of this process are provided in the links below.

 Completed Unit Plans (pre-2016):

Using data provided in the SEMP Fact Book, a series of modules in the Harbor Assessment-based Planning System (HAPS) will guide college programs through questions​ about student achievement, learning and other measures identified in the SEMP​ . Questions are based on institution-set standards or other performance measures established by federal, state or district requirements and included in the SEMP. College programs use program review results to develop and record improvement actions that address any results that do not meet  standards or other requirements. Improvement actions form the unit plan.

In the pilot cycle, unit plans will be validated through administrative review. Validated unit plans are the basis of the annual resource allocation process. Improvement actions will be used to organize and track the request and allocation of resources. Progress and results of all improvement actions and allocated resources are updated annually through 2017. In 2017, the final update of unit plans will form the basis of evaluating the SEMP and mission and their subsequent renewal process.
