Academic Program Review
In addition to Southeast having a robust program assessment process that reviews the quality of program’s meeting their student learning outcomes, SEMO also requires programs be reviewed on a cyclic basis of at least every five years.
Purpose of Academic Program Review
The faculty handbook outlines the guidelines and procedures for Academic Program Review. As stated in the faculty handbook:
The overall purpose of program review is to assess each unit’s program quality, effectiveness, and continued viability; to stimulate program planning and improvement; to continue to fulfill our mission to the students, communities, and people that we serve; and to encourage the unit’s development in strategic directions that reflect the University’s priorities. The fundamental principle in program review is the use of multiple measures to assess programs.
