Western Michigan University Program Review System. Initial Design.
Western Michigan Univ., Kalamazoo.
This report presents an initial design for a university program review system which is intended to improve decision making and planning through an in-depth evaluation of the university's academic departments and programs. The system involves three phases: (1) self study by the department, (2) a review by a committee external to the department, and (3) evaluation of the review system itself. The third phase is intended to ensure that reviews are properly conducted, to improve the review system, and to encourage effective use of the information obtained. Included are an annual calendar and a variety of forms and guides to be used during the process. (Author/STS)
