Academic Program Review Guidelines

Academic Program Review (APR) is a process that assess the quality of scholarship, teaching, scientific inquiry, and community enrichment across the University. APR ensures academic excellence through program-driven periodic evaluation of strengths and weaknesses.

The Academic Program Review Process:

  • Helps maintain high-quality programs
  • Facilitates productive collaboration among university programs and departments
  • Encourages and supports program improvement, including highlighting program strengths and identifying opportunities for change
  • Reaffirms the relationship between the mission of each program and the mission of the University
