Systemwide Academic Program Review: The Florida Plan.
Hill, Joan A.; And Others
The Florida Plan for systemwide academic program review is detailed in this report. Factors leading to the initiation of systemwide review, including population changes and the changing role of the predominantly black Florida A&M University, are discussed. The design and scope of the review process are explained and selection of consultants to assess the programs is described. Five actions taken by the Board of Regents as a result of the site visits by the consultants include: (1) program approval, (2) program termination or limitation, (3) coordination and cooperation among universities and private colleges within the state, (4) budgetary considerations, and/or (5) statewide planning. The following programs have been reviewed since 1976: external degree programs, education, engineering, nursing, foreign languages and linguistics, oceanography, psychology, biological sicences, social work, and computer science. The value of the systemwide review is considered and it is concluded that while there are difficulties, especially in the area of implementation, the review aids academic planning and identifies areas of strengths and weaknesses within the system.
