Indicate your unit’s top priorities for resource allocation. Put your projects in order of priority via the CurricUNET program review module.

Suggestions and Notes

  • Based on what your department considers to be best practices for student success, identify and prioritize what’s needed to attain this high quality
  • When citing current or future needs, succinctly describe current state of staffing, equipment, supplies, and/or facilities in the “rationale” section, then describe rationale
  • Also in the rationale, clearly indicate who or what would be supported if the additional funding was awarded
  • When describing staffing needs, consider including any department-specific staff development needs
  • If requesting technology, please refer to additional materials provided by ITS regarding how to estimate costs – please also see lists with ages for desktops and labs   (available at www.ccsf.edu/program_review
  • When appropriate indicate anticipated life expectancy for equipment and supplies and indicate any anticipated maintenance needs
  • When describing facilities needs, you may wish to include needs related to specific, physical classrooms even if those classrooms do not “belong” exclusively to your department (e.g., desks, blinds, et cetera)
  • If in doubt, include the request.  Although it is not possible to immediately fund all needs, and there are no special points awarded for number of times a particular request has been made, it’s important for your supervisor and for the college to understand what resources would help your unit to improve.  Additionally, it will prompt and inform conversations about longer term planning (beyond one year).
  • The timeline is very important to understanding true costs.  If one part of a particular project is ongoing and other parts are one time expenditures, please be specific.  You may also work with your supervisor to determine if a request can be submitted as a multiyear request with expenditures distributed over time. 
  • Funding may be contingent on additional review along with the scoring and ranking process.  For example, technology requests will be reviewed with ITS for appropriateness and feasibility.
  • Indicating eligibility for restricted funds (Perkins, Basic Skills, Other Grants, etc) does not constitute a full application for those funds.  Perkins applications, for example, require some additional steps be taken.  See page 1 of these guidelines for more information.
