Academic Program Review: Guidelines and Procedures.
State Univ. of New York, Delhi. Agricultural and Technical Coll.
The Academic Program Review system at the State University Agricultural and Technical College at Delhi consists of two phases: preparation of a self-study report by specialized faculty providing instruction in the particular program, and review of the report and program operation by a visiting panel of experts in the field or academic discipline. The Vice President for Academic Affairs, the Division Dean, and the program faculty then meet to review the findings and recommendations of the external panel and to determine the follow-up actions and responsibilities. Each program is reviewed every five years. This manual provides an Academic Program Review Instrument, an outline for faculty use in preparing the self-study, in seven sections: Program Identity (mission, goals, objectives, priorities); Students (enrollment and entry characteristics); Faculty and Staff (characteristics, activities, development); Resources and Facilities (support, staff, services, supplies, equipment, external and institutional funding, space); Administration (program and course development, student and staff evaluation, program performance); Accomplishments (impact, philosophy, objectives); and Recommendations. The manual also includes a guide to resources for completing the instrument, a guide for the external review panel with questions designed to evaluate each of the review instrument sections, and a sample self-study report.
