Academic Program Review

Program review serves several purposes at UAA.  It provides an opportunity for faculty to reflect on their programs, with a particular focus on student learning and success, and to make recommendations regarding program improvement. It also provides an opportunity for faculty to highlight areas of strength and to demonstrate how the program is meeting state needs by graduating students with credentials that contribute, specifically and generally, to the workforce of Alaska. Finally, it provides programs a direct opportunity to discuss program resources and is an opportunity for programs to establish an action plan for moving forward.

All academic programs and units at UAA are required by Board of Regents Policy P10.06.010 to engage in program review on a seven-year cycle. University Regulation R10.06.010 sets out the minimum requirements for program review, including centrality of program mission, quality, demand, program productivity, effectiveness, and efficiency.  The UAA process integrates information about student learning outcomes assessment and the improvement of student learning, as well as progress on student success measures and the closing of equity gaps, aligning program efforts and resources with institutional priorities.  Final decisions include commendations and recommendations, which guide future program efforts.  The results of cyclical Academic Program Review are reported to the UA Board of Regents annually and are published on the UAA Program Review website. See the Timeline and Responsibilities document for a general outline of the process.
