Academic Program Review

The Office of Institutional Assessment oversees the Academic Program Review process, which examines the performance of academic departments and degree programs.  In the Academic Program Review process, faculty identify central objectives for a degree or certificate program, and for related research and service.  Faculty then use a variety of different types of data to evaluate whether the program is meeting those objectives, and how it might be further enhanced or improved.  These conclusions are then reviewed by other university faculty and administrators, and as appropriate, the results are incorporated into the university’s budget and planning activities.  Every fall the Office of Institutional Assessment publishes an Academic Program Review Guide that provides detailed information to units that are starting the APR process. The guide is usually available in early November.
