Academic Program Review


All University units that offer academic programs to University students are reviewed on a seven-year cycle under the Academic Program Review Process.

Program Review Cycle

Program reviews are comprehensive and forward-looking, guiding the future development of individual programs and the units that offer those programs. They incorporate and build on related, ongoing processes such as annual reporting, learning outcomes assessment, strategic planning, and external accreditation review.

Central elements of the program review process include a thorough self-study by the unit under review; an evaluation by a team of faculty external to the unit, which leads to a report with recommendations that inform decision-making and the allocation of resources; and follow-up with administrators responsible for the unit. 

Administration of Academic Program Reviews is a partnership between the faculty Program Review and Assessment Committee and the Office of Academic Planning. Detailed information and resources for academic program reviews are available in the pages linked below.
