Academic Program Review: Schedule, Timeline, and Contacts

Scheduling of Reviews

  • Each program is reviewed on a regular cycle. Reviews may be scheduled to coincide or coordinate with other reviews (such as accreditation) or to address a special concern about a particular program. Reviews that coordinate with other reviews should still address the core criteria for academic program review described in the self-study section. Ordinarily, the length of time between reviews is no more than seven years, but the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost may grant exceptions to this timeframe.
  • The Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost will annually meet with the administration of each college to agree upon the program reviews scheduled for the upcoming years.
  • In the case of a program or unit that is administered by more than one Dean, the responsibility should be shared. For programs not administered through a college, the Dean to whom the program director reports should perform the responsibilities designated as those of the Dean.

Timeline and Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost Contacts

  • Preparation for the academic program review begins a year in advance of the visit. The Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost provides a timeline and SVPP contact for major steps of the review process.
