Project dates: September 2010-November 2012
Northern Michigan University will study current processes for academic program review conducted by its academic departments and colleges; review past university-wide procedures; identify and analyze best practices used internally and externally; and develop a cyclic academic program review process that can be applied campus-wide. The baseline process must be systematic and standardized. While accommodating program accreditation requirements and reflecting best practices and standards for academic program review, it must strive to efficiently align curricula and program offerings with student’ and employers’ needs.
Drafts Ready for Pilot Testing
Note: These draft documents were tested by two APR pilots - Communications and Performance Studies (CAPS) and Engineering Technologies - during 2011-2012. The APR Task Force revised based on feedback.
