Program Review Schedule/Process

The review process is the task of the Academic Program and Standards Committee with the guidance of the Associate Provost for Curriculum. The purpose of these reviews is to:

  • provide information to assess strengths and weaknesses; 
  • provide information for future planning; 
  • provide information on learning goals and outcomes; 
  • place department/program into a larger context 
    • within the College,  
    • within the liberal arts more generally,  
    • and with reference to peer departments at comparable institutions 

Academic Programs are reviewed on a ten-year cycle.  The following guidelines will assist both academic departments and academic resources in the process.
