Template - Self Study Charge Memo

The program review is usually initiated by a self study charge memo from the dean to the lead member of the program faculty, usually a department chair or the chair of a program’s executive committee.

Schools and colleges may create their own charge memos or they may use the Self Study Charge Memo Template. To use the template, fill in [bracketed] information, save the text on school/college letterhead, and send it to the lead member of the program faculty and the copy list indicated on the template.

Schools/colleges not using the template must include the following items in the self study charge memo:

  • a request that a self-study be written
  • a list of the academic programs (majors, options, certificates) to be reviewed
  • a link to guidelines for structuring the self-study (either University guidelines or School/College guidelines)
  • a description of specific items for the academic program(s) to address
  • a due date for submitting the self-study to the dean's office
  • attach the dean's final summary from the most recent review of the academic program
  • copy to Academic Planning and Institutional Research
Additionally, it is helpful to include a link to materials such as the Selected Resources that Support Program Review.
