Thirty Years of Academic Review and Approval by State Postsecondary Coordinating and Governing Boards
Barak, Robert J.
State Higher Education Executive Officers
A survey of the academic program review and approval activity of state-wide postsecondary coordinating and governing boards was concluded in 2006. This study is the latest in a series of survey/studies of state level program review and approval begun roughly thirty years ago by this author and colleagues. The boards selected for this survey were all members of the State Higher Education Executive Officers organization. This report provides a summary of the state boards' responses to the survey and a comparison with previous studies of state-level program review and approval. One factor that did not change over the 30 years covered by this study was the wide variations in scope of authority, policies, procedures, organization, structure and environment of the various state entities responsible for postsecondary education. The report is organized into three sections: (1) Introduction to earlier surveys; (2) Current survey; and (3) Summary and conclusion. Narrative responses by state are appended. A list of resources and references is included. (Contains 4 tables.)
