Program Review/Approval Contacts*

In addition to working with leadership in your home unit, programs should work with academic planners and dean's office staff in their own school/college. The Office of Academic Planning and Institutional Research (APIR), as well as the Graduate School for graduate programs, also work closely on reviews and approvals. Thus, representatives from each unit category below should be consulted; and depending on the status of the review or proposal, programs will be redirected as appropriate.

Redirect Notice

Link to new KB:

Academic Planning and Institutional Research (APIR) has created a new Program Review KB Topic Library on its new APIR KnowledgeBase site. The content formerly housed on this KB has transitioned to the updated document(s). Please refer to this library for documents that provide an overview of program review, the step-by-step process for five- and ten-year reviews, program review templates (e.g., committee charge memo, self-study report, review committee report, etc.), select resources to support program review, and school/college and university program review contacts.

This new APIR KB site is replacing the former Courses and Academic Programs (aka, Vesta) site in a staged transition. (Note: The Lumen KB remains separate and active and is available from the Quick Link in the left navigation of the APIR KB site.) This new APIR KB will include documents related to academic program planning (degrees/majors, named options, certificates), courses, program review, and academic policy.

Typically, your contact will be an assistant/associate dean or academic planner in your school/college dean’s office. Please see the quick list of school/college academic planning contacts below and the attached full list of School-College Academic Planner contacts, updated as of November 2019.
