Academic Program Review: Peer Review (Phase 2)

The peer review phase affords programs a unique external perspective in identifying strengths, opportunities, and areas for growth.

Reviewer Responsibilities

As a review team member, your responsibilities include reading the program's self-study, participating in an on-campus site visit, and writing a report documenting findings and recommendations. 

Reviewer Report Guidelines

Reviewers will produce a written report of key findings and recommendations based on the self-study, information obtained during the site visit, discussions with fellow reviewers, and the background and expertise of the review team. Review teams are provided with "Guiding Questions for Peer Reviewers" to assist the report writing process.

Report Submission

Once the team report is complete, a copy is emailed to Angela Standifer (email address below) in Academic Programs and Planning. The report is then shared with program leadership and faculty to determine if there are any errors of fact or points needing clarification. Following this review, Academic Programs and Planning will communicate with the review team to finalize the team report. The final report is then distributed to program leadership and faculty for the purpose of developing a strategic action plan.

QUESTIONS?  If you have questions about any aspect of program review, please contact Angela Standifer.

Programs actively in program review should refer to the Program Review Learning Community SharePoint site for more detailed information and documents referenced here (requires access privileges).  Reach out to Angela Standifer if you need access to that site.
