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.
