Academic Program Review and Self Study

The purpose of the periodic academic program review and self study is to ensure the continuing quality and strength of academic programs and to meet the program assessment requirements of our various accrediting agencies.

The academic program review currently happens on an 8 to 10 year cycle. Departments prepare a self-study during the academic year, and submit a draft to their dean and the APC Assessment Subcommittee for a preliminary review in January.
