LCCC: 7 Programs Underperform


Galloway, Kristine, Wyoming Tribune-Eagle (Cheyenne, WY)


Hed: LCCC rates some programs as underperforming At a glance The Laramie County Community College Board of Trustees has gotten a report on the first program reviews under a new process LCCC implemented last year. Of the 10 programs reviewed, seven were shown to be underperforming. CHEYENNE - A recent program check at Laramie County Community College rates most of those reviewed as underperforming.

Some of those components are: program design; students' success in the program; self-evaluation of the program; and success in meeting goals.

The Program Review Committee and faculty also rate the programs on their leaders' ability to apply both the college's key performance indicators and the program's goals to LCCC's strategic plan.

Included in the report is a chart that lists final scores for every reviewed program. The report explains that any score under a 3 suggests the program is not performing at the expected level and will need improvement.

Each program has nine final scores. Both computer science and welding fell below a 3 in all nine components. Art and HVAC both fell below a 3 in seven of the nine areas. Automotive technology fell below in six areas. …
