Judgment of Compliance
Narrative/Justification for Judgment of Compliance

For each major in a degree program, Hillsborough Community College assigns responsibility for program coordination, as well as for curriculum development and review, to persons academically qualified in the field.  Each degree program and major is affiliated with an Academic Director and deans.  The Director of the Associate in Arts (AA) Program works in concert with the AA Program deans to provide for AA program coordination.  The Director of Technical Programs works in concert with the Occupational/ Technical deans to provide for program coordination of all Occupational/ Technical and Health Science programs.  Administrative staff qualifications are included in the HCC Program/Faculty Assignment Table.

The HCC Faculty holds the primary responsibility for curriculum development and review.  Fourteen faculty curriculum clusters exist, several with more than one curricular area or concentration (Academic Affairs Handbook cluster summary table).  For each program or curricular area, the HCC Program/Faculty Assignment Table identifies the association between the respective program or curricular area and the faculty members.

Hillsborough Community College's Faculty Curriculum Clusters function as the overall faculty model for assessing the quality of the curriculum and ensuring that the curriculum and its delivery is sound.  For certain Occupational/ Technical programs, Faculty Program Managers provide oversight for assessing the quality and soundness of the curriculum.  For example, in the Health Sciences programs, Faculty Program Managers take leadership in the College's response to accreditation reviews.
