Programs are reviewed at least every five years to address the viability, adequacy, necessity, and consistency with the mission of the programs at the institution. Evaluation of programs is conducted through a self-study process and an external peer review, then culminating with a reflection and action plan.
Academic Program Reviews allow the institution to determine:
- Effectiveness and appropriateness of educational programs
- Program’s ability to respond to current needs, future challenges, and opportunities
- Most appropriate interventions or actions
