College Effectiveness Review Committee (CERC)


The CERC is a college-wide shared governance committee with extensive College-wide representation.


This committee’s function is to receive all Comprehensive Program and Unit (P-U) Reviews and to evaluate each program’s or unit’s worth to the College using the appropriate P-U designated evaluation tool. After each CERC member has independently reviewed all P-U Reviews, the CERC deliberates as a body and responds to initiators and writers of each program and unit with feedback for quality improvement. The CERC also makes recommendations to the Chancellor on campus planning. In addition the CERC convenes the Closing Meeting which provides an annual evaluation of the College’s integrated planning process.
