Cohesive sets of courses that lead to degrees and certificates, along with student services and administrative units, are programs. Divisions may further delineate and define programs based on their assessment needs."
*based on the DRAFT Glossary, the result of a collaboration between the statewide Academic Senate and the Research and Planning Group in response to an ASCCC resolution from faculty in the field.
