Academic Program Review

Program Review is a process that guides the development and continuous improvement of academic programs by examining the quality and effectiveness of existing programs and possibility for new program offerings.  Program review concerns the relation of the program to the College’s mission, vision, and goals; its curriculum in relation to desired outcomes; faculty engagement in scholarship, teaching and professional service, including faculty development and pedagogical innovations;  the program’s use of assessment for continuous improvement; and, future directions for the program, based on an analysis of the program’s current strengths and weaknesses, external opportunities and obstacles, forecasts for the program’s field, and changes implemented since the last program review.

Program review is comprised of a self-study report; an external peer review, site visit, and report; discussion of the review between the program and Administration; and, development of an action plan to utilize the results of the program review for continuous improvement.

All academic programs, centers and institutes shall conduct formal periodic program reviews.

An academic program review consists of:

  • a self-study;
  • an external peer review, site visit, and report;
  • a discussion of the review between the program and the administration;
