Administrative Unit Assessment

Academic and Educational Support Review Process

Ocean County College conducts periodic assessments of the effectiveness of programs supporting the student experience through the Academic and Educational Support (AES) Review Process. The purpose of this assessment is to ensure that non-academic units undergo a comprehensive, systematic, and rigorous evaluation regularly. The emphasis of the review is upon analysis of the unit’s contribution to the college’s mission and goals, effectiveness, cost-effectiveness, innovation, and description of services offered. The five-year review will also include a summary of assessment results with emphasis on how these results have been used to improve the unit’s effectiveness.

Planning and Budget Council Review Process

Assessment is an ongoing activity that is expected to be part of each department’s annual activities and plans and is reported in the annual Planning and Budgeting Council (PBC) document. All departments articulate planning objectives that are clearly stated, assessed appropriately, and linked to mission and goal achievement. The PBC process ensures planning, resources, and improvements are aligned with each other and are sufficient for the institution to fulfill its mission and goals, continuously assess and improve its programs and services, and respond effectively to opportunities and challenges.

Mission:

The Planning and Budgeting Process allows administrative units to review their mission and goals, articulate their planning objectives for the upcoming fiscal year, provide updates to past planning objectives, and to submit new money requests.

The Planning and Budgeting Council (PBC) serves to link the planning and budgeting processes and to evaluate new money requests from units and divisions. The PBC is co-chaired by the Controller and Executive Director of Institutional Planning, Effectiveness, and Compliance.

The council consists of standing positions drawn from the college leadership as well as volunteers from the various constituencies of the college. A call for volunteers is sent out annually during the Spring Semester to fill vacant positions, volunteers are asked to serve for two years.
