Academic Program Review

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.  Exceptional reviews may be conducted, per University Policy and Regulation, and with the provost's approval.  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. 

Program Review Seven-Year Schedule

Schedule: The table below shows UAA's seven-year academic program review cycle, which is being rebuilt following the AY20 Expedited Program Review Process.  The Provost has approved some adjustments in the schedule to achieve a balance in the number of programs under review every year.

Type of Review: The seven-year schedule on this site indicates all reporting that is due, including Interim Progress Reports, Follow-up Reviews, or regularly scheduled Program Reviews.  The type of review was determined by the AY20 Expedited Program Review process.

Past Review and Forms: Detailed information for each program is included in the year the program is scheduled.  See the appropriate year below. Forms will be pre-loaded with the previous recommendations and other information for each program and posted in the list of programs up for review that year.
