Academic Planning & Assessment

Academic Planning

All new academic programs (majors and certificates) are developed by faculty with several steps for review and approval by the university and by the Council for Postsecondary Education (CPE).

 

Academic Assessment

The academic assessment process includes a discussion of the program's contributions to academic quality, assessment of student learning, relationship to institutional and statewide educational priorities, and analysis of data trends in enrollment, student success, and other programmatic performance measures.

Academic Program Review

Every five years, major programs at both the undergraduate and graduate level undergo a comprehensive academic program review as guided by the Council for Postsendondary Education (CPE). The academic program review process includes a discussion of the program's contributions to academic quality, assessment of student learning, relationship to institutional and statewide educational priorities, and analysis of data trends in enrollment, student success, and other programmatic performance measures.

The academic program review builds upon the annual student learning outcomes assessment process by providing a formalized reflection process every five-years in support of the university's continuous improvement efforts.
