Academic Program Review Committee Selection and Composition
A program review committee generally consists of three or more faculty members selected by the dean or university official who charged the review. The dean or university official convening the review committee typically selects the chair of the committee.
Review committee members should be external to the academic program being reviewed. This means they are not in the same department that houses the academic program and are not actively involved (e.g. teaching, executive committee, advising) in the academic program. For small schools and colleges, review committee members should be from outside the school or college.
A majority of the review committee should be tenure track faculty. Academic staff, including CHS and clinical faculty, may be members of a review committee, but should not comprise the majority of a review committee.
Graduate program review committees will include a GFEC member. The GFEC member may not chair the program review committee.
