Planning for Statewide Program Approval and Review. Issues in Higher Education, Number 11.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
Limited resources and competing demands are forcing statewide planners and decisionmakers to become increasingly concerned with program approval and review. One new element is the review of existing programs as states find it necessary to consider program additions in concert with program terminations. The prospect of declining or stable enrollments, and increased public demand that higher education be held accountable for meeting its objectives, has added further to the importance of program review. Initiation of graduate programs is of special concern. The recent experiences of states provides the context for this discussion. What criteria are being used for program approval and review? Who is conducting the reviews? What is the link between this evaluation and budget allocation? What constraints have past decisions placed on today's planners? A brief bibliography is included.
