Academic Program Review and Supporting Course Assessment Schedule: 2010-2017

Academic program reviews are conducted on a five-year rotation according to the schedule below. Faculty review committees are formed within a department, or across departments depending on the sponsorship of the program. Using data provided by Institutional Research and course assessment posted to the website for courses applicable to the program, the committees discuss student outcomes, curriculum, faculty, and facilities; generate major findings; and formulate recommendations. The program review template and other templates and resources for this effort appear below. All academic program reviews conducted over the past six years also appear below, organized by year.
